Using Disk Utility, I am creating a New Image. I am choosing Mac OS Extended (Journaled), no encryption, and sparse disk image.

What type of Partition should I choose?

I would like to use this image to burn DVD's (to distribute software). And I would like to provide the same image as a download (if someone would rather download the software than have it shipped).

It have tested a couple different partition types, and it doesn't seem to make a difference which type I choose...

In particular, I tested "Hard Disk", "CD/DVD", and "No Partition map". Seemed the same to me.... ?
QUOTE Thanks
