There is no GUI available, only 179 packages are installed.  I found
that adding "BOOTPROTO=dhcp" to ifcfg-eth0 lets me use "service network
start" to get networking up.  Unfortunately, seconds after starting a
yum transaction, the OS freezes completely and I have to power off.
Strangely, the same thing happens if I use rescue mode with networking
enabled, even though I'm using it every day successfully to update my
Rawhide system.  Ideally we'd run a single huge rpm transaction to
install all the extra packages from the install DVD, without downloading
anything, but I don't know any easy way to pull that off without using
the (currently unusable) yum to handle the dependency hell.
