Tried FC3T2 candidate upgrade after "yum update" seriously broke my
system along the lines discussed in several earlier threads.

Same problem here.  Also can't get network install to work.  Seems to be
the same problem as

Have had to boot with "acpi=off" or "noacpi" on this machine (IBM A21p
notebook) since FC1 to get Ethernet to work, but this does not help now.
All kernels tried since 533 (538, 540, 541) fail as described in above
Bugzilla.  Last kernel to have working Ethernet on this hardware was
526, but that broke after last yum update, even after downgrading
module-init-tools.  After anaconda upgrade to FC3T2 candidate Ethernet
was still non-functional and X froze

After anaconda upgrade to FC3T2 candidate, Ethernet was still non-
functional and X froze after attempting to start from runlevel 3.  Tried
a clean install with no better results - system freezes in RHGB, or when
trying to start X from runlevel 3 on non-graphical boot.

Falling back to FC3T1 for now.
