For a smooth Pardus experience, please verify the checksum of the ISO files after you have downloaded, and if you will burn the images to CD, use quality CD's and burn the CD in DAO mode with 16x speed.
Pardus ISO files are generated as Hybrid Images. The same Hybrid Image can be burned to a CD, DVD or dumped to a harddisk like media, like a USB stick. More info can be found in the README file next to ISO images. Pardus 2009.2 Beta comes with the latest stable KDE release, enhanced hardware support, bigger software archive; KDE 4.4.3
Linux kernel 18.104.22.168
Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3
Python 2.6.5 are just a few of them. With this release, Pardus International ISO has grown in size and won't fit on a CD anymore. With the addition of Turkish language and many packages, almost 1GB image can be used by burning on a DVD or put on a harddisk like media like USB sticks. We remind you that this is the first testing release for Pardus 2009.2. Not all of the features and optimizations of the final release are ready in the beta release. As this release is within the fast developement cycle, there will be lots of package updates towards the stable release. We welcome you to report us the bugs you encounter and feature requests in our bug tracker  for a better Pardus.
