Yes.  It will only do clean installs, not upgrades, and only contains a
small subset of the DVD (itself a small subset of Fedora).  People keep
asking for install CDs, even after they try the live CD.

Some people with only a CD drive could do a hard disk upgrade, so they
could use any file splitter and re-assemble the DVD on the install machine.
Others would have to repartition in order to have mountable space for the
DVD image.

Some people can do a yum upgrade.  It doesn't matter how unsupported it is
if the other choice is to use CDs that don't exist.

But other people seem to have machines with a CD drive but no room for a
DVD image and no fast Internet connection to the machine they want to
upgrade or install on.  I don't know if it's really true that buying a DVD
drive is too expensive, but some of them say that.
