As far as I've understood it, all that CD-ROM installer does is that it extracts from the single .exe that is the WebInstaller (it's always easier to download a single auto-extracting file than more) so they say it's suitable for a CD-ROM distribution. Honestly, personally, I didn't see the advantage of that (the real advantage would have been to have all the resources uncompressed, that would have gained time), so on our CDs we deliver the Web installers (easier to maintain this way as the same installer is on the CD and on the Web).
