The Aug 9 RC2 dis not throw an unhandled exception when
"basic storage devices" looked at my main HD with a variety
of Linux and Windows systems on it.

But it did complain that swap areas lacked UUID protection.
(What's wrong with looking at the partition ID?)
So I dutifully told the installer to reformat all swap partitions.
This caused the install process to wedge.

I rebooted and selected "specialized storage devices" and
installed F16 with about 2000 packages.  As usual, the
boot loader installation elicited a complaint.

I fixed the booting problem by running Ubuntu's recovery
grub rebuild option.

F16 booted but wedged after noting no ipv6 routers
present on eth0.

64 bit Fedora 16 RC2, Intel i5 with 8 GB RAM, Gefore 460SE,
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3, basic video install option.
