In OP I got mixed up on specs of host I was using. Target was (is) host gx260, which has i845G video getting RAM from system's 1G total, not MGA with its own dedicated RAM.

I tried to initialize an HTTP installation from mirrors.us.kernel.org via
Grub. Cmdline option inst.resolution=1024x768 was ignored (as far as it got,
far short of GUI startup), as were vga=791, video=1024x768 and net.ifnames=0.
Init progressed only as far as "target Initrd File Systems", about 40
seconds. Only keyboard response was to ESC toggling between bootup message
and a bar at bottom of screen that ended "Fedora 21", and CAD to reboot,
since a wait of more than 10 minutes produced no more activity.

Should it have proceeded?

I believe that should work. Could you please come to #anaconda FreeNode
so that we can try to figure out what's going wrong?

Can you please paste here the boot options?
