Why not label it "x86_32" instead of i386? That is far less confusing and
illustrates that it is 32-bit on the x86 architecture, since x86_64 says it
is 64-bit on x86 architecture.

Because that's not what uname says.  Change that, and then we'll talk.

What uname says doesn't have to match the ISO arch name at all. The
suggestion above is very valid and you should consider implementing it
to avoid confusion. Our users would be thankful and so would I, not
having to answer questions about this anymore.

Should there be a RFE bug or rel-eng ticket created so this e-mail thread is not for nothing? It's been discussed since the beginning of time AFAIK.
