Wasn't talking about myself but there are a number of x86_64 systems 
(and want the x86_64 version of Fedora ) without a DVD drive out there. 
  If they don't have a high bandwidth connection it is tricky for them 
to do a installation of Fedora 7. You could copy DVD drive to a separate 
partition and do a hard disk installation but I don't think that should 
be the only way.
