Unhappy How does enigma7.2 fit on a CD


Help,

I downloaded the following Linux 7.2 OS files but most are to big to fit on a CDROM disk because there to big.

enigma-SRPMS-disc1.iso 664MB
enigma-SRPMS-disc2.iso 530MB

enigma-i386-disc1.iso 662MB
enigma-i386-disc2.iso 654MB


Whats going on here?

Whats the difference between the two sets of iso images anyway?

Is there any explanation of the CDROM burning process?

How do you know what release version of Linux 7.2 I have?



Thanks for your help
-Rick

you know they have 700 MB cd-r's.. shouldn't be any problems with space.

hm... well burning iso files is not a simple drag and drop process. not sure which burner software u're using, but there should be an option to burn the cd from an iso file somewhere. i used 2 650MB discs to burn my copy of enigma. if u're burning the cds on windows, try aheadNero. if you're burning on linux, xcdroast has that option...

btw, i think the difference between those 2 sets is the machine architecture. i386 is the intel 386 architecture. i don't know what SRPMS is though.

I could be wrong...SRPM=RPM file containing the Source code.

actually if your using adaptec 4.0 or later, all you have to do is insert your blank cd-r, and then double click the .iso image/file you want to burn.. but that is only in windows of course..
