I managed to wade through the garbled screens of this first installed
VHD and chance my way through the many screens until suddenly the
screen was back to normal!
Looks like I have come through the "first boot" welcome sequence
without really seeing what it was all about except very superficially.

This raises one question:
How can one control the color depth used during the sequencing of the
first boot welcome screens of Fedora7 install?
It does not seem to obey the xorg.conf file contents...

Seems to be the last remaining issue (except of course that I seem
unable to reach this step at all with my re-installs...).

Once this has been resolved (and verified for a new full install) it
should be posted on the visualwin site where all VPC2007 compatible
OSes are listed with the special quirks needed to get them running.
