Comment(by kris):

 Thanks for the report! Glad to see you so enthused about 8.0 :)

 I want to get to the bottom of your issues with 32bit though, asap. I'm
 using both 32bit & 64bit here on various systems, some older, some newer,
 and so far it works the same on both. The installer code is identical
 between the two, so I'm not convinced that its a problem with the
 installer, when it could be something with a driver or such. Here's what
 I'll need from you to adequately debug this:

 On the 32bit installs, how much RAM is present?

 When you boot the DVD (not using live mode), does it bring up the
 installer, and when you begin an install, what error does it bail out
 with? Click the "more details" button and send me the end of the log file
 there, or if you can, bring up xterm, enable networking, and copy the /tmp
 /.pc-sysinstall/pc-sysinstall.log file via sftp to another system and
 attach it here.

 Also, if you end up with a system where the video doesn't work with the
 xorg-detected video driver can you try the option to run in VESA mode?
 That should fix the issue, assuming vesa works as well. We already auto-
 default to 1024x768
