You can still get Fedora on cd's if you want. I'd rather download the dvd
then have to swap cd's. I also currently have 5 machines at home running
linux. I would rather download the software once and then install from the
single dvd then have all 5 machines trying to download the images 5 times.

If you don't want to download the dvd you can buy one from cheapbytes.com for
less then $10.
