If you had asked 30 or more minutes sooner I could have, but I installed 
again and got a much bigger nearly unbootable mess trying to install more 
than minimal. Anaconda installed 660+ packages, then aborted before setup 
finished, without installing any of Grub. I can boot off other installed 
Grubs, but only to single, and if I do ifconfig -a from runlevel 1 the only 
result is multiple screens of segfault info. Possibly 
http://fm.no-ip.com/Tmp/Linux/F/anaconda.ifcfg.log from the earlier install 
has what you want. Logs from the 1AM install are also in 
http://fm.no-ip.com/Tmp/Linux/F/ .

Oh, and after my OP I replicated the first install with same bad results, 
then filed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=675048

understanding rather than silver." Proverbs 16:16 NKJV
