For some reason the installer is having problems with your graphics
card. At boot prompt type "linux xdriver=vesa". If that fails try
"linux text".

I have tried what you have suggested, i.e. to use the vesa driver.

I notice that in this case, I was able to see "Checking dependencies
in packages selected for installation..." progressbar @100%, and
very hung.  Mouse movement is dead, keyboard, dead, everything
I threw at it except the kitchen sink, dead. :)

Now what do you suggest I do (and buying a new computer is not
an option! ;) )?

If you have 1000+ packages the dependency check can take a long time.
How long did you wait?
Overnight (7 hours)
There is no activity, the computer froze completely.
Try "linux text"?
Ok, I tried the text mode (using net-install CD), and
I get the same failure as with the preupgrade program.

The net-install CD does not update grub with the boot
code whereas preupgrade does. The net-install CD appears
to have affected my F-10 yum repos when running in F10,
as yum now updates as F11, yet fails to complete due
to an older (F10) packagekit conflict.  I have a feeling
that my F10 yum/rpm is now hosed. I am still able to
run as F10.

So far as upgrades go, it does not worked for my
(old) computer.  I have wasted 2-3 weeks over upgrades
and doing a fresh install would have been much faster,
or so it seems.

Also, check free disk space. You'll need at least 4 GB free for 1000+ packages.
Don't forget to clean out the cached packages in /var/yum.
What exactly should I delete?
/var/cache/yum/* ?
