That's fine. It can be changed later. No problem with that.

I decided to update production computers, to give some real update
feedback. I could not install a beta or alpha on those systems.

To complete the experience, I updated a 64 bits MDV 2010.2, without any
problem (Intel graphic chipset).

So far, I am pretty impressed by the easy migration from MDV 2010.2 to
MGA 1.

Keep up the good job.

(now running mageia 1 RC)
