Difference install media, desktop live media, and KDE live media

Hello,

I am planning to download the F13 Beta. However, I am confused as to what to download.

What is the diffrence between:
Install media, desktop live media, and KDE live media.

My requirements are to install Fedora 13 using the gnome windows manager and on a 32 bit notebook.

My best guess at the difference is:
Install media: Install the beta version and I can choose the windows manager I want to use, i.e. KDE or gnome.

desktop live meda: Live disk to try Fedora without installing it. However, can I still install from the live CD? Does this contain either KDE or gnome?

KDE live media; The same as the above but only has KDE windows manager.

Many thanks for any advice,

I believe you have it right.

The major limitations are no 64 bit support, but since you are targeting 32 bit that
shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Difference install media, desktop live media, and KDE live media

Desktop live media:
Gnome (and only that) liveCD, can be installed onto harddisk

KDE live media:
As the name says, liveCD with KDE (and only that) desktop, can be installed onto harddisk

Install media:
Install DVD (no live system), which contains Gnome and KDE, so that you have a choice.
