I don't have suggestions in this paticular case, but are we not talking 
about a more structural problem here that should be addresssed: it takes 
to long to load the installation image. Myself I have encountered this 
several times, that it takes ages for the installation image to load. By 
itself this is not realy a problem, but there is no screen action during 
loading, making people to believe the system has hung.

What are the consequences when F15 will be releaesed?
