When I installed FC5 to my older machine, and used text-install, I was
put into level 3 when I first booted and had to later edit /etc/inittab
to set the default boot level to 5. 

Here's the fun part. If you're going to install FC6 that kernel problem
was part of the install process, noted as a bug and got hashed over
quite a bit on this list in the beginning. So it was awhile ago, but not
in distant past. Just delete using rpm -e --nodeps kernel kernel-headers
kernel-devel. Then yum -y install kernel* which should work. If I got
this wrong, someone correct me please. I think the kernel was the one
installed i686 and the headers i586, killing them both off and
re-installing was the answer I think.  Ric
