I find this interesting... the iso won't fit on a CD:
[Download the ISO, burn it to a DVD]

Yet the base system that they are selling in Wal-Mart doesn't have a DVD
burner, only CDRW:
[gOS Operating System
VIA C7-D 1.5GHZ Processor

Seems as if they need to either trim the iso a little, or replace the
base hardware with a CDRW/DVDRW. Some of the folks that buy those will
want to download a backup iso only to find that the equipment that
they've purchased can't burn a DVD.

In any event I wish them luck as I definitely would like to see the
effort succeed.
