It booted up and had a lot of messages flashing by on the screen. I was
running SELinux targeted and enforcing.
After the initial boot. I tried to start X as a reqular user. This got
the monitor to switch to graphics, but you could not ping the machine
from another box or ssh into the computer.
After a hard reset, there were many file errors relating to inodes. Then
I was able to fsck and correct many inode errors and boot into a terminal.
I then suspecting SELinux needing relabeling, ran fixfiles relabel in a
tty. I then rebooted and X locked hard again (541).
Trying to fsck again, then boot into an earlier kernel that was working
fine also had many errors relating to inodes and even lost + found. At
this point, I just decided to boot into another installation and
reformat the test installation and mount it to download the test
candidate into the newly created and large partition (7 gig)

It looks like the http transfer has slowed down to 14 KB/sec. This makes
completion to be around 4PM. I guess I'll wait for it to complete.
It's great that the ppc rawhide version is still working great.
