I do not mean to sound disrespectful or indignant by asking this but Why not do a bug fix and make it so one can use a CD since information on Damn Small says it can be burned to CD. Not every one knows how to copy ISO's to USB including myself. Plus it would save on people getting frustrated. THANK YOU for your time and consideration.

It should work just fine when you burn it to a CD... It did for me a while back... Haven't tried with 4.11RC1 or RC2 yet... Have you checked the MD5 for the ISO?

4.11rc1 burned to cd for me without any issues.

I'm not sure what the OP is trying to do that isn't woking.
A better explanation of what he wants to do and what he has to work with might help get him where he wants to be.

Check that you have a good download. Burn the .iso file to CD as an 'image' file.
Most distros theses days are 'hybrid', which means they can be used to create CD's or USB/Pendrive systems.

Another concern could be the burner software. K3B does a great job of making ISO cds. However, I have had problems when using other cd burner programs. I have not tried Nero, but I understand it is reliable. Also, check your burn media, that is the cd. If you are using a CD+RW, some if those can eventually reach a point of being unburnable, that is no longer able to delete and write. A memory effect if you will. I have had that happen a couple of times. Also, check the physical condition of the cd. Just because it is new doesn't necessarily mean that the disc is in good shape. I've only had it happen once, but I have had it happen in which I bought a stack of 25 discs and found one that was so badly damaged that it was unusable, save for as a coaster. QA failure perhaps, but it is just something to watch out for.
