is there a walkthrough
anywhere on how to make the resulting system usable?
yum grouplist

Pick the groups you want to install, then

yum groupinstall "name of group" "name of another group"

And so on.
Good, that sounds not too difficult.  Of course, it assumes that
networking is working.  Does anyone know how this is done after a
text-based install?  "ifup eth0" didn't work.

If you are using NetworkManager you turn the internet on by choosing the
eth0 option in the nm-applet in the upper right corner of the panel.

If you are running network then use system-config-network and configure
the eth0 interface, That is thew same as choosing the
System->Administration->Network option

Find out which you are running by using the : chkconfig --list |grep
<program name>

Only one should be running. I would expect by default it is NM.

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.

Boot with the "forcefsck" option, to refsck all your partitions. Until you do that, with all those freezes, it's fairly likely that you have some corruption that is going to keep you from accomplishing anything useful.

Then, the next step is "rpm --rebuilddb". This will recover your RPM database. Until you clean up your partition, and your RPM database, you won't get very far.

If after all that you still hang, the are only two remaining possibilities: failing hardware, or you're hitting a kernel bug.
