2g, 4g, 8g

The images are matched to the size of the SD card they are
to be installed onto.   (Well, actually they represent the smallest
card we've encountered in that size, as all SD card models
vary slightly in size.)

There has been a recurring thread about always installing
the 2GB image, and then resizing the filesystem on first
boot to fill the SD card ( http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/10040 ).

You can always use a smaller image on a larger SD card,
but until you resize the filesystem, you will be wasting part
of the SD card.
