Yes - ISO was the standard one from the fc2 site (2.6.5-1.358). It 
automatically installed the smp version.  I have since updated to 2.6.6-1.438 
Interestingly, there appears to be a difference between the blades.
The new one (as well as fc2 install not being able to see the disks) also 
couldn't determine the monitor type, so I selected a generic LCD display.
This was good enough to let me continue to the disk partition where it bombed
