  ok, that clears things up in the sense that i couldn't figure out
*where* i got that tarball Fedora-12-Beta-x86_64-DVD.iso.  if
pre-pre-releases like that are still going to be available (even if
not officially), it might be a good idea to add the RC# part to the
tarball name itself, just to avoid confusion.
