Forget it - the machine in question is now registered on the network
so the install will work when I can get back to it in the next day or
so in between other work.  I have a test laptop at home, and I will
check a clean install on it using an original physical DVD in the
coming week.

All I asked was whether someone had successfully installed F15 from
the DVD install iso using an optical disk drive, for a clean install
on bare metal, without any wired or wireless network - clearly nobody
replied on that - perhaps they could not reply since they could not
install- hah!

Anyway this particular thread does not seem to be getting anywhere so
just drop it - I will do my own investigation.
