	In the USA I just bought 100 Memorex CD-R and they say on the round Box 
they are good to record at 52 times normal play time, hold 700 MB, which 
is 80 minutes of music, I think.

	I have every, including the Karmic version of Ubuntu LiveCD on CD-R 
disks. I think the guys who make the .iso files make sure they are less 
than 700 MB.

	I have Hardy on a CD and it works fine as do all the later versions.
