Ack. Thats not a good sign. Better be Bugzilla'ed.

However I notice anaconda now auto-detects sungem (it didn't around the
FC2 days or even a little later, iirc), it won't allow me to choose
airport since its already found one. Fine by me, just thought it'd be a
useful option (besides, who wants to do an NFS install over wifi?)

So its PPC only? I use sungem on the few ppc boxes here, seems fine
