      DVD Media Only

Due to known problems in comps,  this is a DVD Only Re-spin. The CD 
version would have required all 6 to 7 discs to install.

      Full Installation Problems if Language Support Groups Selected

Selecting some language groups will cause file conflict errors, such as 
reported and explained in #465715

Due to limited resources, this spin will immediately obsolete 20080718, 
which will be deleted from our mirrors in the next few days.

Fedora Unity has taken up the Re-Spin task to provide the community with 
the chance to install Fedora with recent updates already included.

These updates might otherwise comprise more than 2.05GiB of downloads 
for a full install.

This is a community project, for and by the community. You can
