	For the record, I did one of sorts at last. 

	After long grief, and with much help both here and from RDay's 
Fedora Cookbook jigdo page, I got a .iso -- which K3B seemed to do better 
at burning than Brasero, especially with poor man's double-DVD-Rs. 

	I put one into an F8 laptop, which hadn't been updated for a 
couple days. It booted, passed the media test in Anaconda (as it had 
K3B's), ran anaconda, and claimed to install two things -- a new version 
of anaconda itself, and something that went by faster than I could see.

	After the obligatory reboot, I did "yum clean all," "rpm --
rebuilddb" (on general principles), and "yum update" -- which got nothing 

	But the machine and its F8 were both fine, before, during, and 
after -- no error messages, and everything still works.
