According to my CD burning program (Nero) the installer image I have downloaded is too big for a normal CD. Message (partly):

Why don't you buy 800mb cd instead? :)

possible, but some indication by Gentoo of this is necessary imho.

It's not supposed to be this way. We're in the process of doing a new build, which will hit the mirrors as 2008.0-r1.
The 2008.0-r1 x86/amd64 LiveCDs have been released and will be hitting a mirror near you soon.

I'm downloading it now (from a US mirror) and will give it a try. The size seems OK so I'll only come back when necessary.
it worked fine when i did overburn a 700MB cd. i created also an .iso from this overburned cd and it matched the MD5.
