Difference between CentOS minimal and LiveCD

HI Experts,

I know CentOS a little bit and since a few months ago I installed CentOS 6 from a LIve CD in order to configurate a website and I used to running in console mode. Yesterday I tried CentOS 7 minimal ISO but I realized that alot of commands like ifconfig and system-config-network aren't working.

What are the differences between minimal and LiveCD installations?

Thanks in advance..

The minimal CD is just enough to start a network installation. You plug in your network info during the install process, and point it to a CentOS mirror to install the OS. The Live DVD has all the packages on the disk, so you don't need a network connection to install them.
