This DVD is a double-sided disc. A DVD device always reads the side of the disc that is facing down. This DVD is labeled like a normal DVD – the label you see as you place the disk into the tray applies to the data on the opposite side. For instance, if you are installing Mandriva, the Mandriva label should be facing up in the tray.
