Fedora 9 DVD
Fedora 9 is an evolutionary enhancement to a distribution that continues to improve with each release. The Fedora project combines the benefits of Red Hat engineering with the freedom and flexibility of a community-based distribution. Red Hat uses Fedora as a test bed for technologies that might one day appear in the premium, enterprise-grade Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We are proud to bring you Fedora 9 as this month's Linux Pro Magazine DVD.
This DVD comes with a re-spin version of Fedora 9 that includes bug fixes, security updates, and other improvements added since the official Fedora release.
New features in Fedora 9 include PackageKit, a single, easy-to-use package manager that supports a variety of package systems, as well as the FreeIPA security management application, and an improved version of the NetworkManger configuration utility.

what's the dvd not recognized as disk 1 with gui install error "fix"I have 2 F9 DVD's, one "respin" form Linux mag...thanks very much..plus one I downloaded.
Both give the same error and "test" OK.
When running a gui install, after selecting packages when the progress bar is about 70% a dialog box appears asking for disk 1. I've not found a way to get past this with the gui install.
Text mode install works just fine....
What's the fix?

Missing DVD case cover sheetI miss the cases, though I can do without them, but would really like to have the inserts so I can continue to reuse the cases I have for the distros I particularly like to keep. Would it be too much trouble to continue to provide the case inserts?
Shift from Plastic DVD Case to Paper WrapAs a subscriber of your magazine I was used to your flat DVD plastic cases.
Since you went "green" with your last issue the case disappeared.
As a RHEL/CentOS/Fedora user I am particularly interested in storing DVDs covering one of those distros
while I usually don't care too much for the others (e.g. OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, Xandros for me are the usual throw away candidates)
So at least I would expect some DVD cover sheet PDF or similar to print out and wrap my own case with it.
But I cannot find it on your website.
Did it also fell prey to your GreenIT ambitions?
I know that these days DVDs seem hardly justified as almost anyone has flat rate high bandwidth Internet subscription.
Me too, so I could well run an overnight atjob to download the ISO and have it burned on a DVD.
But still this would take 2-3 hrs. and then, lacking a fancy disk printer, the hand scribbled title wouldn't look as pleasing.
