I understand your point. My post was a solution to your, and your mate's,
problem. Whom I saw as a real person and not a mythical person.

As for a script to make CDs from a DVD. That I have never seen. There was
at one time a script to go the other way. To make an installable DVD from
a set of CDs.

Such a script might be on the DVD and basically be an elaboration, perhaps with GUI, of
for D in *.iso
 do read -p "Insert a new CD, press <enter> when ready "
  cdrecord -eject -sao $D
  echo Label that disk $(basename $D .iso)
 done


It has been discussed, and I do not know what the decision was, or if one
was made, that Fedora 9 have CD's.

I, myself, have looked at the Live CD's. They are missing basically
nothing that Joe Average User would need. For me? It was Thunderbird and
four other small programs with which you probably are are not familiar.

try me:-)

I haven't tried live CDs, apart from Knoppix and recently a Ubuntu I know how they work, and one needs a generous amount of RAM. The Ubuntu live CD thrashed and thrashed and thrashed.
