Deltaisos built on F10/F11 would save about half the download size (deltaisos built on Rawhide are not currently functional). If there is a F10/F11 (not Rawhide) machine that can access this filesystem, then running

cd </pub/alt/stage directory>
makedeltaiso 12-Beta-TC/Fedora-12-Beta-TC-i386-DVD/Fedora-12-Beta-i386-DVD.iso 12-Beta-RC1/Fedora-12-Beta-RC1-i386-DVD/Fedora-12-Beta-i386-DVD.iso 12-Beta-RC1/Fedora-12-Beta-RC1-i386-DVD/Fedora-12-Beta-TC_RC1-i386-DVD.diso

will generate disos which are about half the full size for TC->RC1, and about 2-3% of full size for RC1->RC2. The sizes and applydeltaiso times in minutes of the files I've generated are

Fedora-12-Beta-TC_RC1-i386-DVD.diso 1,577,077,261 7m
Fedora-12-Beta-TC_RC1-ppc-DVD.diso 1,803,348,472 9m
Fedora-12-Beta-TC_RC1-x86_64-DVD.diso 1,693,468,563 8m
Fedora-12-Beta-RC1_RC2-i386-DVD.diso 74,236,265 3m
Fedora-12-Beta-RC1_RC2-ppc-DVD.diso 106,279,982 4m
Fedora-12-Beta-RC1_RC2-x86_64-DVD.diso 52,431,247 3m

Of course, to use these one must already have either TC or RC1 (probably TC since RC1 wasn't announced).

If I've installed FC12-alpha and done yum updates from the rawhide repo, will I effectively have this FC12-beta

are all the latest packages in the rawhide repo??

I did a network install and couldn't find a mirror with fc12-beta packages, I only found fc12-beta iso's

thanks in advance

I was able to download the Fedora 12 Beta on a i386(32-bit) DVD iso and the install went well and clean.

RahulSundaram, thank you for your post. F12 Beta ==> Happy me.
