slow (s-l-o-w) install

One of my computers folded its tent.  I usually use that as an excuse to
upgrade so I purchased a new Intel dual-core machine with 4gb of ram and a
500gb hard drive.

Now I'm trying to install F8/x86_64 on it, and the installer is running
amazingly slowly.  It took about ten minutes before the initial graphical
screen showed up, and things have been running amazingly slowly ever since.  It
has been running for about 90 minutes now and I've just finished answering the
questions, the disk has finally formatted and I have now arrived at the
"Starting install process. This may take several minutes" screen.  I guess that
means this will finish installing but at this rate it may take all night.

What's holding up the parade?
