I feel like I am missing something really obvious here. Can you clue me in? (oh yes, and in case you were wondering- I do have Noob tattooed on my forehead)

Hi!
If you browse a mirror (www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors.xml) you can download the r1 of beta2 which is only 671 MB. The path to the beta is releases > x86 > 2008.0_beta2 > livecd.

Yes, I found that. However, that doesn't really answer my question. Why would gentoo advertise that as their CD distribution if it doesn't fit on a CD? (or at least none that I buy) I'm more interested to know because I don't understand it than I want to try the newest beta version. (I'm very inexperinced and any problems I encountered would just leave me frustrated)
