You mean the red nebula, right? I will remove it soon. How about the  
light around the planet? Maybe I can try to change the red nebula into  
a light one, just like the one around the planet.

Some of guys said "x686". I think it must come from the kernel  
version. Maybe I can just use "32-bit CD" and "64-bit DVD" or  
something like this?

I am still struggling on this, since some of them said that too many  
words in the sleeve is not a good design. DVD is ok somehow, since the  
space is enough. However, I think the one needs more words is the live- 
cd. I am now planning to add a small label like "Insert&Enjoy" for  
live-cd and "Install&Enjoy" for DVD. How do you think about it, guys?  
You can find my drafts of two labels here(The characters are white-

A rough effect after adding it is:
