I Came a-cross some linux compression formats but not sure how to open them in Windows XP from the website
this linux version compression some of the iso I think in the following formats
and the full path to these files
also another file format I have never heard of
Repost under here in case the main directory does not give me a reponse on my compression quesion
Is this Linux for Pentium 4 based computers?
I thought it was for the 386 based computers but I am not sure yet, I think distrowatch puts it in the 386 type but not sure
anyway are the normal iso files the same as the compression formats their like those 160MB uncompressioned are they 300MB files?
If so why don't other linux use these compressions for their iso images? why don't they compression the iso files to make it easy for modem users to download , I mean 7 CDs for debian , I could download one or two off my modem with no problems but It would take me a long time to download 7 Cds with my modem and even if I get the First CD and download the rest from linux it would still take me a long time to use my modem in linux to download all those files it just makes no sense to do so, its the only reason I don't use debian Sid , I download knoppix but them to use apt-get update ok I didn't mind download those files put to have to download 250MB of files just to use apt-get on a 56 modem thought vmware just ain't for me, I really don't mine downloading 200MB but to have to download it all in the same day debian no pause on download
yes, it seems smaller then downloading 7 debian cds but , I really don't like to download 100 or more MB with my modem it takes nights and days to do so...
but anyway I am getting offsubject, what downloadable windows compression programs can handle .xdelta,.bz2,.lzma,.rz
iso compresion files? So I can know that I can decompress these in windows before download those iso files to burn to cd? theirs no point in downloading them with no current windows compression program can handle them I would have no way of burning them to a cd with nero which handles burning iso files?
