It would be very nice if someone could throw some text into the mirrors file to differentiate the two "versions"..  Oh yeah, I need the x86_64 .iso.

Actually, I guess I did not know what the virtualization package was.  
If it had been called Xen, I know I'd not have installed it, but 
essentially looking through the first parts of install (which I'm doing 
right now) I see it there, clear as day, and I can assure you, that box 
is not checked !  It's very possible I may have had one or two too many 
'ritas when I was doing the install and just said the heck with it.. 
check everything!  Now, if I wind up with a kernel with xen in it, I'm 
gonna wonder why, 'cause I sure as heck don't want it.  As for the where 
on the DVD, I think that one came from gatech.
