Probably, though the update disk may not function correctly, as I remember
doing a failed experiment around that time to combine the install disk
with updates and that DVD might have been from that experiment. The logo
would be imbedded in files. Also it might be an issue if it is from the
experiment as then it would be a distributed ISO, which might not count.
I suspect the rescue disk doesn't display the logo, but possibly "Fedora"
will appear doing the boot process. I probably have a normal FC6 install
DVD around somewhere and just haven't run accross it yet.
