ubuntu image size 732 mb - too big for cd

i have an old pc that can't handle a boot stick install, so i have to create an actual, old fashioned boot cd.

however, the image size for ubuntu 12.04 is 732mb, which is too large for cds, which can hold only 700mb.

the maintainers of ubuntu 12.04 say the image size will never go over 700mb, and indeed, the download size seemed to be 689mb.

what's going on?
