Re: CD and DVD ISO images

It is a silly question:-) It misses the point, which is to make Fedora easier to share and to install on machines which lack DVD drives and good Internet access.

Well, you keep mentioning "Neither helps install sans network" and statements that seem to indicate that lack of network is part of the hurdle.
yes, both of
1. No good network.
2. CD drive but not DVD.

I've never had a problem to install on a system without a DVD drive but a good network connection. I've used the "Live CD" method or downloaded the DVD iso and did a network install.

My proposal addresses the cases of no DVD drive but CD, and no good networking.


So, I guess whatever solution you're proposing is redundant for me.

Sure, it's not for everyone. However, I sometimes would like both, and the cost of providing CD isos imbedded in DVD isos and used for installing is pretty small.



Wouldn't it be somewhat better to go with something like CentOS which already has CD ISO images? A distro such as CentOS is also more stable...as in less frequent updates. So, if you don't have internet access no need to worry about how to get the 47 or so updates that come out every so often.

haven't you noticed my description of Fedora?

Doesn't ring a bell....
"rolling beta" and words about the wisdom of using it for important work.
