I don't think it can be patched up just by adding extra content; I
think the existing content needs to be made less gratuitously
confusing in the first place.

"Small CDs" is a terrible description, especially when it goes on to
refer to "small CD-R(W) media, 80 mm/3.1″ in diameter" as if that
wasn't the standard size (and as if I couldn't use a DVD).  Is this
page using "CD" to mean "ISO image", so that "small" is in terms of
disk space, or what?  And what's all this about "Tiny CDs"?  Is that
third option trying to refer to hd-media installs?
