Why would someone have done that? I would have ext2/3 to be supported before
FAT as ext2/3 is more common than FAT for linux boxes in my experience.
It makes it kind of hard to try out the daily boot isos. I did work out
how to make a DVD image from what's currently in core (I can't use pungi in
mock yet as I never migrated from FC5 to FC6) and that would have worked
except I ran up against a problem with software raid layouts not being properly
detected and I couldn't finish the install.
