Description Leslie Satenstein 2006-08-11 20:19:54 EDT
Description of problem:

When installing from CD/DVD the core5 version (32 bit or 64 bit) should be
mentioned. It will save frustration when doing a fresh install and
heartaches when doing an 32 bit upgrade with a 64 bit version, only to find that
there is a kernel panic....


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Use any DVD, including respins.

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected results:

An informative message indicating the bit version.

Small non-functional but informative bit of information. Would be nice to have
info in the release notes or on the first screen.
Comment 2 Leslie Satenstein 2007-06-01 16:55:17 EDT
If Annaconda screen(s) had a different background color for the 32 bit, 64 bit,
and ppc, versions, the problem would be solved.
