bordeaux-binary-i386.torrent will work with most machines with CD-ROM drive.
bordeaux-DVD-i386.torrent will work with most machines with DVD drive.
bordeaux-binary-x86_64.torrent will work with computers with AMD64 or Intel64-bit Processors with CD-ROM drive.
bordeaux-DVD-x86_64.torrent will work with computers with AMD64 or Intel64-bit Processors with DVD drive.
bordeaux-binary-ppc.torrent will work with Macintosh with PPC Processors and CD-ROM drive.
bordeaux-DVD-ppc.torrent will work with Macintosh with PPC Processors and DVD drive.

Most probably bordeaux-binary-i386.torrent will work for you and is what you want as long as you have a PC.

Hi,

you will need some bittorrent software e.g. azureus (http://azureus.sourceforge.net/). If you have a DVD drive I would suggest
downlaoding bordeaux-DVD-i386.torrent else you will need to download the bordeaux-binary-i386.torrent which, contains
the Fedora distrobution that can be burnt to 80MIN CD's and will be approx four CD's,

How To Reduce Deployment Times With Pre-Baked AMIs

Even if we can't include all the files in the base image, we can sometimes include some of the larger files that we would otherwise have to download, and we can also sometimes remove the most time-consuming steps. This can help a lot with reducing deployment times.

They are all ISO files (with .iso extensions at the end).  You have to have a CD-Writer to burn them.  You can use software like Nero or Roxio EasyCD Creator to burn them into CDs.  If you don't have any software, you can install CDBurnerXP (free) from http://www.cdburnerxp.se/.

If you don't have a CD-Writer, you better just buy the CDs from some store like http://shop.cheapbytes.com/cgi-bin/cart/0070011279.

The 3.2GB iso is a DVD image (bordeaux-DVD-i386.torrent).  bordeaux-binary-i386.torrent is 5 iso files.  My first posting was asking you to download the bordeaux-binary-i386.torrent
