ISO matching size

If I do a "du -ks ." on my Redhat 7.1 CD i get 658150kB but the ISO of 7.1 is 656756kB.

Is there any error or?
Should the size of the CD always match the size of the ISO?

The actual size of the ISO file and the mounted CD-ROM filesystem size reported by du may be different. Again, to be absolutely sure that you'll have a good copy of RedHat is to check the MD5 sums of the ISO files before you burn them.

you could technically make back iso file from cd and check sizes again, I'm not sure about checksums
