Gee I was referring to the mirrors that are doing this for free. Not your
drive space. Ta' know downloading, storing, keeping duplicate packages,
stuff like that. All for free I said again.

There are no official Fedora CD sets for Fedora 8, that I know of,
available. I would trust the ones from the site I recommended. Did you
actually read the pages?

The jigdo uses *your* already official downloaded Fedora DVD packages and
downloads *official* updated packages from *official* Fedora mirrors to
replace the old ones. And then makes new iso(s). These are not *trust me*
isos by some third party.
