I replaced the DVD burner with the CD burner/DVD reader and was able to
install the 64-bit FC5 without any problems. In process of trying to
install the 64-bit version, I had at one point inadvertently installed
the 32-bit version. This version installed from the DVD burner. I think
this all indicates that there is some problem with the DVD burner and
the 64-bit install. I think this also explains what happened when I had
some time ago tried to install the 64-bit FC5 on the other almost
identical system (also with a DVD burner).

Is there an easy way to install an iso install file from a working FC5
system? Is it possible to upgrade from one version to another (e.g., FC5
to FC6 when it becomes available) using yum?

Thanks for the help.
