Bug description:
Rev. 788
Ch. 1 "Burning the CD image" section (p.11, PDF p.13)
Type: tautology

Since CD means "compact disc", "CD disc" is redundant.
I can see that it's being used to differentiate the physical disc from a CD image file, but since "CD" appears twice before in the sentence, "disc" alone should be sufficient—it also would allow a brief note that a DVD could be used instead if the reader doesn't have a CD-R(W) to hand.
