I (and others) would like to see the problem with 'no longer being able to
resolved.  Apparently something between FC5 Test 1 and Test2 _changed_ the
the CD and DVDs are made, preventing some people from installing off of
the media, whereas older version of Core work fine.

This is reported in Bugzilla #s: 178143, 182147, 178632

This bug will prevent (some) people from being able to install Fedora

well actually _no_ taste, since they won't know how to get past
the boot prompt!
