It could be Live CD, or just the Fedora installer spread across smaller media. The DVD is an install only.

Whatever. Live CD or CD is a CD. Both CD and DVD can be use to install Fedora 11 but why it come out as CD and DVD? So that why I want to know the different.

One of the lessons most american children learn at a young age is "If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all."

So, with that in mind, I'm going to leave you with a famous quote to ponder.

You can call it another freedom provided by FOSS. If you need to use only a limited number of softwares and have an internet connection, then you just need to download the CD(700 MB) and then install the rest of softwares you need using internet. So you save bandwidth. But if you are without internet access and need most of the softwares, then you get the DVD(3.5 GB image) so that you don't need to download a log of packages. Thus internet connectivity and requirements are the deciding factors on which an individual's decision depends.

So the DVD is better because it's include more packages than CD. So if I install using DVD, I can avoid using yum for a numerous of packages because they already include inside DVD.

CD = Less packages, installer included
DVD = More packages, installer included

Also, once installed you can use yum to install anything you want...so really it makes no difference which one you use...

I don't want to depend on internet too much. The packages in the server might not stay forever. If the server down, we will stuck to do what we want. We should keep something we need in our hands so we can use when we want.
