Thanks for weighing in. I don't know the answer myself, so I'm curious to get to the bottom of the mystery.

I just checked out your links and the DVD version is 3+GB which which is too big to burn to a CD. The CD version is smaller and obviously fits on a CD.

I believe (but I'm uncertain) that it is only the size that makes a given ISO for a DVD only.

That does make sense, but here's a quote from Ubuntu that appears to say different:

If you would like to receive the DVD edition, or if you simply don't have the ability to download the large CD images, then you may wish to purchase Ubuntu. Choose from one of the following options:
Now I'm curious. Hope someone can find the answer.

I've burned CD iso's to DVDs before. Didn't have a problem using Gnomebaker or K3b. Nowdays I tend to just install from a thumb drive, so its been a while.

However, if Ubuntu doesn't offer that then I wouldn't want to try a different distro. I want to install it on the other computer, my main computer, to help me learn Ubuntu.
