Re: CD and DVD ISO images



I think some folks have lost sight of what the OP was suggesting -- a Bootable 
DVD made up of multiple CD images, which could be used to install as a DVD or 
loop-mount the DVD image and copy the individual CD images out. Apparently 
that's what the first Fedora DVDs were... a collection of CD images, or so 
someone here said.

IF that were the case, I don't know why Fedora decided to drop that model in 
favor of a "real" DVD image, but that does make it difficult for people (like 
myself) who do not have a "bootable" DVD drive. I've got a DVD drive, but for 
some strange reason I can't seem to boot off it. Whether that's a BIOS issue 
or what, I don't know. I don't particularly care, either. It does not matter 
to me whether I boot off a "boot cd" and then install from the DVD or from a 
collection of CDs. I just need something that my system will boot. 

Also, not all of us are made of money and can afford to go out and buy the 
latest and greatest motherboard/CPU combo and the latest and greatest DVD / 
CD burner, etc. Some of us have to make do for several years.

Not trying to sound argumentative, but some folks on this list seem to think 
that if you can't use a DVD, you should go out and buy all new hardware just 
so you can install off the DVD. I just thought I'd point that out.
