I can suggest sophisticated way I've used to create F18 HVM AMI for my
own (ami-eeac3187, us-east-1, feel free to use it):

1) Start any existent HVM AMI (I used RHEL)
2) Upload RAW image with fedora
3) Overwrite hard drive with Fedora's data (I don't exactly remember
but I think I was using dd)
4) Sync & reboot -f
5) Create AMI of your instance

Warning: I'm not sure AMI won't have 'RHEL' billing product attached
after all.
