I wonder if this is the same or related to a problem I'm having...
using the Live CD it hangs every time at "Starting setroubleshootd".
I can't even boot FC9 to see if I like it.  FC8  IIRC would boot from
Live CD, but then after installing it would crash during boot.  I'm on
an Athlon XP processor and I've tried Ubuntu and openSuse and they
work properly.
