I was able to download the Mint dvd and it was 831 MB. I found an Knoppix 6.2 dvd had 3.6 GB. I do not have time to check the difference in files between the cd and dvd.

I personally could not check these out because I could not find a knoppix mirror with a dvd option and the linux mint mirrors seem to be down now.

[and visit the Knoppix BitTorrent Tracker, and click the "DL" link next to the image you want to download ( -EN or -DE ). Save that file, then run btdownloadgui KNOPPIX-[date].torrent.

Several ways to skin he cat. PETA, just a cute saying.

BTW, I use knoppix with other diagnostic LiveCD. The Knoppix LiveCD works for me, the LiveDVD just has more software.

You will not get any arguments from me, knoppix makes one of the better live cds but have Mint also for the ext4 file system and grub2

Hi,

Just a heads up to get CD or DVD. I prefer the CD for my use.

I agree especially for repair or recovery work the cd has all that a person needs and of course being smaller loads faster plus some of the older sets I get once in a while do not read dvds.
