I have no problems booting the upgraded system. It seems like it is only
the anaconda/f13 upgrade boot that consistently would hang for 20
All of the /var/log/anaconda.* log files start at the moment the system
got unstuck after the 20 minute hang. No help there.
This system is a 2.8GHz P4 system with only 512MB RAM.
The only issue I have had so far after the upgrade is a small evolution
problem with my imap account.
