Try reinstalling, but choose ext2 filesystems rather than the default
ext3.  RH7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 8.0 and 9 all sometimes exhibit this issue,
and perhaps Fedora does too.

done with the install.  Only the installer kernel shows this particular
glitch.  Instructions are at

I wish someone would figure out why it does that.
