Looking for Fedora LiveCD/DVD with RPM capability


I tried the rescue mode of the install DVD. It doesn't have any package management initialized. What I want to do is have a LiveCD environment where I can install an RPM package into that live running system (not persistently ... but pretending so in RAM).

Ubuntu can do this. If I choose "Try Ubuntu" in the boot menu selection, I get a live system that has the DEB package manager ready to go. It can install more packages that depend on packages already installed.

I just want the same but having Fedora.

If 16 GB of RAM is not enough, I can get more.

So is this a different image than the install CD/DVD? Originally I only saw one to download, and this looked like it.

I guess I'm answering my own question: they can't be integrated because there is an install image that is MUCH larger than the Live one. So I need two disks.
