Thanks for revealing that the feat is possible. It however would be 
better if this option was possible and could be performed without having 
to complete out of the ordinary steps to add needed modules to the 
initrd image.

I'll give the USB installation a try. Also, there is interest in being 
able to install FC on external usb drives and a question was asked if 
this method was possible. I posted a link to your message for their 
previous question which I thought was no longer possible. (Does not even 
recognize USB hard drives for me using askmethod or regular install.)


I find this corpse guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and I fine it $40.
