I have installed Fedora 13 now, the first login and updates are next. 
But just to verify, I tried booting again with the USB stick with 
askmethod parameter ... and now it works as expected! I have no idea why 
it did not work the first couple of times I tried. I must be doing 
something wrong then.

BTW, erasing the "vmlinux" line after pressing TAB and replacing it with 
"linux askmethod" does not work, it just gives back the boot choices.
