I believe so.  Checksums are definately checked (RPM won't install a
corrupt package).

Certainly.  I actually haven't installed Fedora (or RHEL/CentOS) any
other way in a long time (probably at least 5 years).  Just about all of
the RHEL/CentOS installs, and some of the Fedora installs, were from
kickstart, but most of the Fedora installs were interactive.

I would say that sounds like there was something wrong with your repo.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
