Talking about size, my personal opinion is as near as 700 MB would be
the best, but not more. If I burn 100 MB iso on 700 MB CD, I feel I
just wasted 600 MB. This is one of the reason I run INX on QEMU (using
iso file instead of burning it to CD). It is just my personal feeling
though as I don't pay for bandwidth I use. Other people paying
bandwidth surely feel it differently.
