I think issue #1 would make the ISO worthless for most of the intended 
audience. Also, as I think the CD image will be preferred by people over 
the DVD image who are on a limited connections, I think we should not 
release an ISO file that's too big; It would not be a very positive first 
impression for them with Mageia.

My two cents worth. Sleep tight all and thanks for all the hard work :-)
