What are you speaking about? Promile? Speed? Version? Color? Date? Radius of DVD disk? Vertical or horizontal size of the DVD case? Loudnes? Amount of information units? What units? Apples ... plums ... ;-)

He's right.. The PPC Preview for Leonidas is 4.63gb.. which doesn't fit a standard DVD

Oh no. Leonidas has too many gigabytes. They better start taking stuff off install. Ok. it's just the power pc version. You're going to have to download the CD versions or burn it on a dual layer disk.

Wow what a jerky response.. boy i'm sure glad i downloaded Fedora and joined the forums. Maybe that was a mistake. Like i'm going to waste a dual layer on prerelease software.

Update: Gonna try the netinstall, lets see if it works for my G4 Cube.

Update 2: Netinstall not working, doesn't let me configure WiFi, which is WEP secured so can't obtain IP address.

Wasn't meant to be jerky. I was just shocked that it was over 4.35 gb. I thought when you posted that all of them were over and I hadn't noticed. I guess the PPC having such small instruction set is bloating the code way up in size. Sorry network giving you problems. You could try the cd install though it's a bit of a pain switching them in and out on install.
