I have a 700MB CD on which I'm putting the LXDE version of Fedora 18, and I wanted to know what happened when I remove LXDE and install GNOME 3, as the GNOME 3 version is too big for my CD.

If you are planning to install fedora from LXDE CD than it is better if you just install GNOME 3 and leave LXDE intact. – blogger Feb 3 '13 at 21:31

You can use yum groupinstall GNOME, and after everything is in place, remove the LXDE group.
