The Fedora release includes several live ISO images in addition to the traditional installation images. These ISO images are bootable, and you can burn them to media and use them to try out Fedora. They also include a feature that allows you to install the live image content to your hard drive for persistence and higher performance.

6.1. Available Images

There are three live images available for Fedora 7.
  1. Fedora 7 i686 Desktop CD. This is a CD sized image for i686 machines. It includes the GNOME desktop environment, integrates all supported Fedora locales, and features a basic set of the productivity applications available in Fedora.
  2. Fedora 7 x86_64 Desktop DVD. This is a DVD sized image for x86_64 machines. The feature set is the same as in the i686 Desktop CD and includes multilib packages.
  3. Fedora 7 i686 KDE Desktop CD. This is a CD sized image for i686 machines. It includes the KDE Desktop environment and a large set of KDE applications. This image only has full support for the English language. The GNOME based Live images do not include the OpenOffice.org office suite to save space. Instead they include Abiword and support for more locales. The KDE Live CD uses parts of koffice instead. The Fedora Live images do not support i586 class machines. To install Fedora on an i586, you must use the classic installation method.
  4. Fedora 7 x86_64 KDE Desktop DVD. This is a DVD sized image for x86_64 machines. The feature set is the same as in the i686 KDE Desktop CD and includes multilib packages.
