Description of problem:
When installing using the default Fedora Core 4 Xen 3.0 installer, some packages are wrongfully being replaced with i386 ones.
One can easily destroy the x86_64 Fedora Core 4 install.
The used installer was:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download http://bits.xensource.com/Xen/latest/xen-3.0-x86_32-fc4.bin.tar
2. Untar it
3. Install it on a x86_64 Fedora Core 4 install
Actual Results: The Fedora Core 4's package database now contains a few wrong i386 packages
Expected Results: Installer should have at least warned me that the architecture is incorrect
It would be very useful to have x86_64 support

We can't really fix packages that are not created by Red Hat or even part of
Fedora. But integrated Xen packages are a feature of FC5, so this should be
fixed there --- we don't yet have the kernel built for rawhide for x86_64, but
that is planned for FC5test3.
