Ignore that RHEL comment from the reporter, its from some rpath install. 
RHEL hasent shipped a 2.6.19 kernel yet and definitely dont use conary 
for the media -> disk transfers :D

Can you try with the --targetarch option to anaconda, that *should* 
work. I dont have any geode kit so cant verify. A look at the iutil code 
indicates it *should* work to force a i686 kernel down into the 
installer ts.

( btw, if you get yourself into CC on that bugs.centos.org report, we 
can work through the issues there )
