While the whole beta is approximately 1.5 gigabytes, the base installation is
500 megabytes. This includes the basic operating system, networking
software, X Windows (graphical interface software), the Mozilla and
Netscape web browsers, and the KDE and Gnome desktop environments.
Due to the size of the installation, you will need to be on a fast least Internet
connection such as DSL to have a reasonable download time. From LinuxPR.
