    LiveCD image too big for CD's


    Just thought this was funny. The liveCD image is 730 MB, while CD's only hold 700MB.

    I tried the minimal install, and it wouldn't even bring up Linux at all. It stopped after detecting mouse and sat in A: drive.

    You can burn the image to a DVD or there are larger CDs available of 850MB in size. They are a little bit more expensive harder to come by so the DVD route might be easier.

    Figured it out, it was my CD Burner program. It must allocate extra memory for something, and considered this part of the file.
