    Stupid question


    I am looking at the Mandrake ISO's and they 714MB and 711MB for the second two discs....how are you supposed to get those to fit onto a CDROM or are you not supposed to?

    I'm guessing that these are for DVDs?

    However, when you try to do the installation it asks for those other discs. Kinda weird...maybe it is just me though.

    Maybe they're made for 700 Mb discs? I've one a few occasions seen that the ISOs are a bit larger than the "output" when burned to a CD, don't know why, maybe it's in the ISO format?

    Donít worry, these are designed for 700mb CDs. ISO images are usually larger then the amount they actually burn onto the CD.
