RE: just a question
Good question.  I would say from an aesthitic point of view, the light will shine in and run parallel with the boards, which tends to look better.  However, if installing over floor joists, you should always install the hardwood flooring perpendicular to the joists.  So it may not always be best to install parallel to the light, but it usually looks best.
