This reminds me of a neat trick I discovered... with all the talk of how Windows 7 works well for netbooks (or at least better than Vista!), a lot of people have probably downloaded the release candidate ISO, only to realize that they can't make an installation DVD from the ISO because their netbook doesn't have an optical drive.
