Actually, I was duplicating the text-based install on my VirtualBox in
order to be able to walk my father through it remotely.  But the hang
only seems to happen for me using VB.  For him, on the real OS, it works
fine.  He just edited ifcfg-eth0 to change ONBOOT from no to yes, and
added a BOOTPROTO=dhcp line.  After "service network restart", his
network works fine, so he's busy with yum groupinstall right now.
