Wink CENTOS-5.3-i386-LIVECD.iso,Is it for LIVE running purpose only or for install as well

CENTOS 5.3 i386 LIVE CD.iso is being downloaded by me at the moment and it will take around 6 hours to complete.

I wanted to know, if the .iso image is for LIVE RUNNING PURPOSE ONLY OR
it can be used for INSTALLING FRESH FULL COPY of CENTOS 5.3 on my system also.

If it can be used for installation as well then its ok,

but if it cannot be,
than can anyone please tell me, where can i get such a download which i can use to install CENTOS 5.3.

I don't know if you can but there is a "Network Install" option on the Live CD, allowing you to perform an FTP, HTTP, CD, Hard Drive or NFS install. See for more details. And please stop the caps thing in this and your other thread. We've got other ways to emphasise things and shouting shouldn't be necessary ever anyway.

All caps is considered to be shouting and impolite.
