Wait for Monitas, the networked version of mondoarchive. I say wait 'cos
it's still alpha and not exactly high on the priority list but there _is_
work happening on it... Dunno what the space requirement is though.
If you have 3Gb spare on each of the source machine and the DVD machine,
you can use mondoarchive and specify the (nfs mounted) DVD machine's fs as
the iso location. If your source machine is short on space, you can use
the DVD machine for all temporary space though there'll be a big
performance hit there and you already said that was a pain.
