With all due respect, Nigel, if you REALLY need to install ALL by ONCE,
i mean ALL-ALL in just ONE STEP, get a good dvd and a good connection. I
don't understand why don't you use the live cd, which installs really
fine. Then you kann yum/yumex to add just what u need by dialup. I have
many clients with CD-only-PCs, and we installed fedora with the liveCD
on that PCs. Do you realize that installing ALL spends more bandwidth in
never-used-package-yum-upgrades? -additional to the dialup bandwidth you
used downloading the dvd-... Can you use all the DVD distro packages?

I have a DVD on my laptop, have the F7DVD, but preferred installing with
the LiveCD, is a lot simpler and light. I dont know which packages
weren't on the liveCD, but upgrading and a couple of yum installs made
me a happy user. Ubuntu 7 works the same, I tried on the laptop, but F7
Live installs a better program set (and something: I prefer F7).
