FC6 Install No go :(

I always get
"db4 error run database recovery"
this happens in various places. Sometimes after installing perl, sometimes
after ncurse. As a result, no bootloader was installed (hangs there). I
mounted in rescue mode and found that no kernel was installed. This is
understandable because the db4 error occured earlier on and affect
installation of the packages following it.
i was successful in select a minimal install "base system" and got just the
character console. I'm tempted to start an rpm loop to install all packages
but I think I'd be missing the usual routines performed by anaconda.
is there any hope for me? I love the FC6 compile option for performance but
it seems i'm out of options. I've tried so many variations of installation
and numerous trickery but still no go.
i guess i could restart the minimal install, install X, then minimal
KDE/GNOME and anaconda then add packages. Any help on how to go about this?
This is an IBM NetVista 6833-61U 768MB RAM
