Images are hard to maintain, hard to translate, have to be changed
constantly (with every test, potentially), and don't give any more
information than we already do with words.  The user is most often
following along with the instructions, so the screen is up in front of
them already.

I finally put this down somewhere:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DocsProject/StyleGuide/FedoraSpecific#ScreenshotsandImages

If you are looking for something graphical to help new users who have
never done an OS install before, you might want to create a screencast.
To capture the screencast, it probably has to be installed in a virtual
environment.
