All is working excellently with the final release of FC5. Just the one 
thing, that it was trying to use my IDE non-RAID drives to boot from and 
such when they were plugged in, though I only use them for backup; I 
unplugged them, and the install went smoothly. Specifically, it added 
one of my windows installs on an IDE drive as a bootloader entry, and 
tried to install the bootloader on the MBR of that drive, both of which 
used the correct places once that drive was disconnected. I don't know 
what affects its priority there, but I was in a text install and 
couldn't find a similar thing to changing the boot order, to get the 
bootloader on the right disk.
