Core is the absolute minimal subset. You'll get to a login prompt with
a shell and a root password. Base is a far more reasonable minimal
subset that will even let you install packages afterwards ;-)
I mentioned this elsewhere, but perhaps a name change from "core" should
be made to avoid confusion with "Fedora Core". My suggestion was "base
operating sytem", maybe "minimal operating system", or even "minimal
boot environment" :)
And "base" could become "minimal installer/developer environment"...
still thinking... but the idea to suggest that it isn't for normal users ;)
