Description

The LiveCD platform was deactivated back in July, as a part of the switch to making everything based on pkg. The "LiveCD" nomenclature is still visible in places such as the installer ISO filename and the page on snapshots.pfsense.org, along with various parts of the documentation.

We need to replace "LiveCD" with something more accurate. The memstick filenames don't say "LiveCD" so we could name it "disc1" as opposed to "memstick" to clarify its purpose further. Lots of options there. I'm partial to "disc1" since that is what FreeBSD uses for its installer disc image, and it's still small enough to fit on a CD

Some possible examples (open for debate):

pfSense-LiveCD-2.3-BETA-amd64.iso -> pfSense-disc1-2.3-BETA-amd64.iso
pfSense-LiveCD-2.3-BETA-amd64.iso -> pfSense-dvd1-2.3-BETA-amd64.iso
pfSense-LiveCD-2.3-BETA-amd64.iso -> pfSense-disc-2.3-BETA-amd64.iso
pfSense-LiveCD-2.3-BETA-amd64.iso -> pfSense-installer-disc-2.3-BETA-amd64.iso
