Sorry.  Wrapper may not be the right word or my memory may be off 
(happens all too often anymore). 

All I was trying to say is that I thought that the FC6 and prior DVD 
images included each CD image in the release such that it was possible 
to easily break out the individual CD images.  That is, there would be a 
directory within the DVD image for the set of files that would be on 
each CD (or something along that line). 

I always pull down the individual CD images so this is something I 
thought was stated in some of the postings to this list.  I just 
(vaguely) remember somebody pointing this out in a posting.  If I'm 
mistaken, sorry.
