Yes, we may rename the Live images to i386.  When they were first
introduced, we had both an i586 and an i686 kernel in Fedora, and the
Live images were only usable on i686, they had no i586.  Now that we
don't have i586 anymore, we can change the live image name to i386.  It
was too late to do this for F12 at the time somebody suggested it.
