I tried text mode.  It was about the same thing, performance-wise.  It takes
about ten minutes to get to the first screen that asks you if you want to do a
text installation or a graphical installation and everything else seems to run
at the same snail's pace regardless of which option you pick.

Well, this is running.  Or walking... maybe crawling.  I'm up to "311 of 1419
packages completed" now, after about three hours.  So it's getting there;
should be done by morning, I suppose.

I've installed Fedora 8/x86_64 on an Intel Core 2 laptop back just before
Christmas  and it rattled right along, which is what makes this such an
unexpected surprise.
