Fedora 7 multilib.

This might not be as obvious as it was in previous releases, but I noticed that there is no option in Anaconda, nor Pirut to install a multilib environment. Is it installed by default?

Multilib = ability to run 32-bit x86 programs on x86_64

It appears to be. I installed the 64bit fedora and I'm using several 32bit apps.

yes you can link 32bit libraries to 32 bit binaries on a 64 bit os, but no cross linking ie a 32 bit lib with a 64 bit binary executable

Actually the way Fedora accomplished this was by shipping both versions of the libraries, both 32 and 64-bit, the problem with other Linux distributions seemed to be their package manager (which apparently got confused), where YUM doesn't.
