That's an good option also. But now there is something in it from
Pango/Firefox and users forget that note if they see it before all the
installation-information. maybe it can be splitted in Read before and
read-after. If nit, then it is indeed better to place it at top.

So you guy are somebody that only think about geeks instead of
home-desktop-users? I'd say the solution is to give everybody a PC-training
so they will lean to be as the Linux-geeks...then they will read the
releasenoted before installation.

As long we don't have a training for home-users like that they will probably
never see the releasenoted before the installation-proces.
