(Note: *DO NOT* run the installer that is on this image. You'll probably 
end up with a broken grub. Should be fixed soon)

I've put a test image up at - this should work 
if burned to a CD or dded to a USB stick. Insert, hold down alt, select 
the Fedora logo. Possible outcomes:

1) Complete failure. I've fixed all the cases I know of that could cause 
this, but there may still be possibilities. Please file a bug.
2) Boots, but graphics don't work. Please try with nomodeset as a kernel 
option, then file a bug.
3) Success. Hurrah! Do nothing more.
