I am downloading the 6 fedora CDs and would like to make them into just 2 ( or 1 ) dvds.    I have heard this can be done.

    Step 1: stop downloading the 6 CD ISOs.

    Step 2: start downloading the DVD ISOs, for example from here:

    That assumes I have bittorrent.   Suse 9.1 does not have it and I do not want to go through the pain to install it and learn to use it.  If I had it I would learn to use it.

    Trust me, the pain to install and learn to use it is a lot lighter than the one you'll go through combining 6 cds into 1 DVD. It's a lot more useful skill, too.

    Ok, I figured it out.  For some reason I did not have a icon and the command was not simple.  It says it will take 2 days to download and we will see.

    This is the better way.
