Identify Fedora ISO

Forgive me if this is a stupid question.

I have 2 Fedora DVDs, one is Fedora10 i386, other is Fedora10 i686 or X86_64 (hopefully).

How can I identify which is which? I cannot find out any clear difference in the contents.

It may be possible that both are i386, but then I would like to have clear identification...

Ok, I ran the installer from both ISOs. The installer shows that both are same

I think there should be some file in the package declaring the contents, if there is none.
