Added a little marketing to my jewel case submission with the addition of the product name "Linux" and the fedora project URL to the front cover. I also added spline edge detail which would show on the back if folded flat. I used the format from the Fedora 5 cd wiki as a guide (928 x 459 px @ 96 dpi).


Made text change and soften Linux.
