What is the difference between CentOS-6.0-i386-LiveDVD.iso and CentOS-6.0-i386-bin-DVD.iso?

.. do you know what a Live CD is? ... if not simply knowing this will tell you the difference. – Thomas Oct 3 '11 at 2:34
Yes, I know a Live CD but I don't get it why there is a word 'bin' in the "CentOS-6.0-i386-bin-DVD.iso"? Would be better to call it "CentOS-6.0-i386-DVD.iso", right? – Larry Morries Oct 3 '11 at 2:46
@ascobol, you question is referring to why CentOS is given the name 'CentOS' or you are referring to why I choose CentOS as the question? – Larry Morries Oct 4 '11 at 1:15

The LiveDVD will be bootable, and the other DVD contains the binaries required to install CentOS. There may sometimes be a cd labelled src which will contain the source code for the system.
