ALL the distribution media is now in DVD format, so a CD will never work.

In answer to your note to IBM: Customers were complaining that there were too many CD/DVDs per distribution and asked IBM to cut them down. What you want would make IBM create a new image, that they just got done combining. At 7.1 they went to a model where you could also get groups of language support, each group having a series of languages. That way a customer can download only the group that is needed.

This many not be granular enough for your tastes but they did have to find a midpoint somewhere and the current model is what they came up with balancing customer convenience and cost to maintain.

I just downloaded the I_BASE 710-D from IBM and when I went to burn it, my
burner SW told me it was just too large to fit on a CD and asked if I
wanted to Overburn . ie go past the 700MB mark. Which I did. I have now
also made a DVD version as well. Has anyone else 'overburned' the I_BASE
and did it work OK or did it have problems. I will know this weekend but
was curious now.

Why in the heck did I have to DOWNLOAD ALL of SS1 to get just the I_BASE?
15GB of unwanted stuff for a 700MB image.. YUK!
