;)I'm new to ubuntu, i'm downloading ubuntu server edition through torrent, its in rar format, and size is 637 MB,
my question is how i have to install after downloading?
whether the size would be much more than 637 MB(as it is in rar format)?
kindly help...:D

My downloaded iso for 8.10 desktop is 715.6 Mbytes.
My understanding is that the rar file is just the iso file compressed/coded, so it should be the size I have when un-rar-ed.
Then you just treat it as a normal iso (create a CD from it or whatever for the install). It fits onto a standard CD with no space problem.
