It is really the problem for me to merge the same planet from DVD to  
CD, since I didn't find a better way to copy several layers together  
to another Gimp file(I am a newbie there...), so finally I made a png  
for the planet image and combine it into the CD files. I am sure that  
the conversion from layers to png has eaten something... Anyone gives  
me some ideas on that?

In fact I used the MgOpen Moderna, since when I tried to use MgOpen  
Modata, I found that the effects on my works showed a little  
difference from the ones in the sleeves of Fedora 9, where MgOpen  
Modata was used. I think I can changed it soon.

Ye guys, you are right. I didn't consider this problem. I will try to  
decrease the number of colors.

Thanks for all of your comments!
