I am writing to report that the ia64 dvd image is broken,
somehow after about 3-4 separate downloads none of the images was bootable,
you put the DVD in / mount it to vbox , the power on and nothing happends ,
then the system hangs..
after that i downloaded the i386 img and installed the 32 bit version,
this is actually an old issue,
It happend to me somewhere before the official release but I didn't give
it much thought
since it was still in rc.
but now I think it is a big issue...
