This is the funniest thing I have heard in a while.
If you were planning on downloading the IMAGE and burning it to a CD,
what exactly is preventing you from downloading the
tarfiles and burning THEM to a CD? IT'S THE SAME FRIGGIN THING!

In fact, it is EASIER to download a few 10's of megs worth of
.tgz files than it is to download a 640M iso image. I can pull them down,
burn the cd, and have the firewall installed in the time it takes
be to pull down a single RedHat ISO.
