Cheat. Unpack the ISO, delete all the crap you won't use
(Internationalization), and rebuild the ISO. There is over 1G of crap on
a CentOS distribution, so the same should be true of Scientific.
The other possibility is to add a Scientific Repo to CentOS.
Finally, why do you even need ISOs? Do an NFS/HTTP/FTP Install.
CDs and DVDs are SLOW. You ARE using Kickstart Files, are you not?
