Uhh, the installer is updated when there's a new release. We had a new version
of the installer ready for the failed 2007.1 release, but it will end up on 2008.0.

All of these packages (except maybe Evolution) are available on the LiveCD for
installation as part of a networkless install with the installer. The LiveDVD
should have Evolution as well. The installer won't install anything the user
doesn't ask for. If you want it, check the box on the Extra Packages screen.
