That's what I was thinking. Considering the compressed file system, I
would think that you could get a lot of stuff in 1.7GB. This way you
have a fairly complete live CD and a full FC5 install from the same

Is there much more to it than just combining the contents of the install
DVD and live CD and changing some isolinux files?
