I'v been trying to put some packages, etc (for backing up)on a standard 700mb CD.But the size doesnt seem to be enough, despite tcompressing them!
However,I have observed that many linux distros (e.g. knoppix) comes packed with a lot of stuff whose total size is sure to exceed 700mb CD. So, do they use some special kind of compression? If yes, what/how?? Can I incorporate something similar to store more data on my CDs as well?
