At least the default graphical tools available in Ubuntu won't burn more
than 700MB in my experience. I just needed to test different versions of
Feisty live CD and wasn't able to burn some of them because of this
limitation (I wonder a little why some ISOs have to be 1 to 4 MB over
700MB, but I guess there's a reason).
