The stage 2 image is rather too large, and it would kick the 
minimum required ram up 'wayyy too high for many.

I am sure that a patch testing ram present, and deciding if 
it is more than say 128 M more than the size of the biggest one:

[herrold ftp loop]$ ls -l `find -name '*img' | grep sta | \
	grep -v image ` | awk {'print $5"     "$9'}
2704029     ./ftpinstall/1/dosutils/autoboot/initrd.img
2704029     ./ftpinstall/1/isolinux/initrd.img
10170368     ./ftpinstall/1/RedHat/base/hdstg2.img
10502144     ./ftpinstall/1/RedHat/base/netstg2.img
64114688     ./ftpinstall/1/RedHat/base/stage2.img
[herrold ftp loop]$

and if so unblocking the 'text only' notice would be welcome 
at Bugzilla.  

IANAHNBARHE. Integration and payback for doing so seem low 
except for niche installer users, though, and it may not get 
integrated, given the drastic changed in Anaconda each cycle.
