Burn the DVD image to a disc and boot it up. The Creative Commons tech team

Worldlabel.com<http://www.worldlabel.com/>for supporting this project
and helping to push for better standardization,
making LiveContent an interesting tool and providing a necessary nudge
toward easier content sharing. Thanks also to Fedora
