I am wondering if I have encountered a real bug. I was able to install 
both Debian with the sarge installer iso (though X isn't configured 
correctly), and Mandrake 10 Official installed cleanly without any 
errors at all.

Before I create a bug report, I need to ask the community if:
a) there is anything else I should try to do before filing?
b) what output should I report?

Are there other RH/FC-related distro's that might have a better shot at 
getting installed, that I could upgrade to FC (like try RH9, then 
upgrade to FC1??)? Just thinking out loud, really -- I'd just prefer to 
have Fedora on here than a distro that I don't know much about!
