Or a CD-R99 if your CD writer supports that. The KDE image is 849963008 bytes, 
a CD-R90 is ~824832000 bytes (i.e. NOT enough, it can fit the GNOME image at 
819398656 bytes though), a CD-R99 is ~920829952 bytes (but most CD writers 
don't support that up to full capacity). (I put those ~ signs there because the 
actual capacities can vary, especially with non-standard formats like 
CD-R90/99.) It would be nice to keep these sizes in mind too when 
adding/removing packages.

Or one could cheap out on the error checking and burn in Mode 2/XA mode, which 
fits the GNOME iso on a regular CD-R80 and the KDE one on a CD-R90 (possibly 
even an overburned CD-R80). But I'm not sure that's a good idea.
