Thanks so much Cameron, Angelos and Alex.

We have check out  the code and  we down sized to 87Mb after installed.
Like you say, from now, we can work with you (OsGeo-LiveDVD Team) in
those aspects that are required to  include i3Geo installed on the next
version 6.5

We believe that including i3Geo in OsGeo/LiveDVD 6.0 like a Beta will be
good considering the time before next release.

Also comment that we are sure that we will can integrate i3Geo with
sample datasets from OSGeo Live; and that English interface for users
works correctly. But certainly is need a QA time and translating.
