I just installed 32 bit to 2.8GHz 1024 cache family 15 model 3 stepping 4 
without NX on i915 using 
http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/development/17/i386/os/images/boot.iso

Since yesterday I'd been trying to start install from HD using this Grub stanza:

title Install Rawhide (hd0,13)
     kernel (hd0,2)/fedora/vmlinuz 
repo=http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/fedora/development/17/i386/os 
gateway=192.168.1.1 dns=192.168.1.1 graphical ip=192.168.0.2 
netmask=255.255.255.0 hostname=myhost noselinux noipv6 vga=0x318 
resolution=1024x768
     initrd (hd0,2)/fedora/initrd.img

That got me along _much_ farther than you, halting as described in today's 
thread "Unable to read package metadata".
