Description of problem:
Let say I'm doing network installation and my directory tree on install server
looks like this:


Now, if I use x86_64 CD/DVD to boot, but by mistake point Anaconda to i386 tree,
it will happily install OS from i386 tree.  Not really sure if this should be
allowed.  If nothing else, it could easilly break postinstall script that might
detect they are being run on 64-bit system (which in turn can play havoc on the
final installation).

That is how multilib works in RPM.  Can't fix this.
