White Box Enterprise Linux 3.0 Respin 1 x86_64 Issues

From John Morris:
The x86_64 images currently posted will not boot. Still working out exactly WHY, when the only change from the last known working version was whitebox-release (and of course new comps and rpmdb packages) but the important thing is that a workaround has been created. See the download page for a small 4.4MB .iso with a working boot image. New x86_64 ISOs will of course have to be released once a full understanding is achieved.Read more
p.s. I know everyone is asking why didn't I do a test install and catch this one? Of course my build host's DVD/CD writer had picked this last weekend to go unreliable. So I pushed the images across the network and burned a set, did an install on my i386 test box and ASSumed that since only three packages had changed I could skip suffering through an install on a balky CD reader. So when the replacement showed up today I did attempt a test install and started looking for a fresh brown paper bag.
