What I meant was that anaconda logs messages to one of the virtual
consoles (VC3 I think), which you can access using Ctrl-Alt-F3.
Similarly, there's access to a shell on VC2 IIRC (Ctrl-Alt-F2).
Ctrl-Alt-F7 should return you to the graphical installer.

What I've done in the past when having disk space issues is to open the
shell window, do a chroot /mnt/sysimage and remove some large packages
until I've got enough space. Unfortunately the FC5 installer isn't
giving the option of trying again, and requires a reboot when it detects
a space issue.
