    Why is Linux 8.0 larger than 9.0?


    first time installing linux on a used 500 mhz Gateway PC i got for 70 bucks!

    is there a new compression used in the installation cds so that why theres only 3 cds in linux 9 installation and 5 in 8?

    i'm trying to put the installation cd's onto one DVD.

    ----thanks anything would be great!----
