FC-6 speakup install failures

These errors are not actual fact. What I mean is that you can, and we
have, determined that the packages which appear to cause the failure are
actually present and pass their checksums. So, something else is going
on. In fact, if you rerun the installation with the same media on the
same machine, you're likely to run into a different error, or no error
at all. And, of course, others of us have installed from these same
images without incident.

It would be extremely helpful to know if the problem occurs with the
stock Fedora disks (or not). I am not aware that there has been much testing of
text mode installation in Fedora. Most users installing interactively
are using the graphical installer. Most others are doing "kick start"
scripted installs.
