ok, it is monday morning, so I am a little slow on the uptake. Did you know that someone else posted this before you submitted the original, or did you find out later then edit the posting to reflect this new knowledge?...8)

Everyone be nice and leave your BitTorrent running for a while after your downloads are done.
That way you can help the others who are still downloading.

Does anyone know what the additional stuff is this time? I'm used to the ISO files, SRPMS ISO files, and MD5SUM, but new to this release appears to also be:

FC2-i386-DVD.iso
FC2-i386-rescuecd.iso

The latter is sort of self explanitory I suppose, but both of those files appear to be around 75 MB. Does anyone know what the DVD one is in particular? If the DVD one was in the 2 - 4 GB range in size, it would be pretty obvious, but I'm not sure.

If anyone knows a website that explains this (preferably not *.redhat.com, as it seems quite unresponsive at the moment) feel free to direct me there as well.

Ok, nevermind. The DVD one is 4 GB after all. I finally got into a mirror site with command prompt FTP, and realized this. Apparently the version of CuteFTP I was using holds file sizes in U32s, and the DVD ISO is about 75 MB more than 2^32 bytes, hence it was showing up as 75 MB.

The DVD one is a DVD-iso. It should be in the 4 gig range. You might be looking at the file size wrong.

It would be good to know what's on the Rescue CD. I already have Knoppix and Mandrake, which both have various diagnostic utilities and am wondering whether I need another CD like this.
