Must have been the magic twanger,, it ran anaconda and now says
"Welcome to Fedora" in a white window with an "OK" center screen.  Got through 
keyboard and language, then told it to skip the boot loader update as it dual 
boots to xp too.  Trying to do an update in text mode. dependencies will 
probably give it an upset tummy.

I recall seeing the figure 27% as a place it got stuck too, from previous 
posts, but its made it to 36% now...  About 1.5% a minute, HD led never goes 
off.  Looks like the starter pistol must have fired, I'll be back if any more 
gotcha's show up.


Cheers, Gene
