I had a lot of trouble attempting a USB installation. I had no luck 
trying to use lvm for part of the installation.

The closest I could get with FC5T3 installation was to prep the disks by 
making filesystems, ext3 for the partitions that I wanted. I got the 
installer to select packages and start the installation. Shortly after 
starting the install, the laptop computer just went into shutdown.

Hopefully for FC6 there will be an option to install to a USB device and 
no post-install work will be needed.

I might move the USB disk to a desktop computer and give it a shot with 
FC5. Without CPU frequency control, my laptop cannot stay in 
installation mode for that long of a period.
