Dear Michal,

I am just asking for some pointers. I am unfortunately far from home 
(read 'on a business trip') and do not have my installation media with 
me. How unfortunate!

What are my other options?

I'll try fixed IP as well and see how this goes.

(also note that we're talking "stable F15" - should I be surprised that 
this kind of things can happen on the release version? I personally 
don't mind so much and was thinking to go back to rawhide... the irony 
;-) ).

Else I'll check if I have a USB key in my bag somewhere and can 
regenerate the install media for rescue mode.

no matter what thanks for giving me some pointers, sometimes it seems my 
brain panics for no reason.
