This is all getting too complicated. Maybe that's a sign.

Perhaps we should ditch the non-Live CD version of Fedora 7, and just
have:

* Fedora 7 Live! (with Gnome)
* Fedora 7 Live! KDE edition.

Plus a note saying the operating system can run from the media directly,
or be installed to the hard disk, or used as a rescue disc.

On a separate note, I really can't imagine Live discs being used
extensively for day to day use- they get no security updates. But this
is a separate, and different issue.
