Sounds like you still have a machine that can boot, therefore just a 
little grub trickery will get a clean install of FC5 started.
Add a new section: /boot/grub/grub.conf
title fc5 install
   kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz
   initrd /isolinux/initrd.img

and copy the above two files from the FC5 install folders to a new 
folder /boot/isolinux

Then choose this boot option when your current install boots.

You might also be able to download the iso's. If you can, you could 
perform a hard disk install: point the installer at the location on hard 
disk...you need to know / write down the partition and folder. This 
would get around network reliability issues killing your install.

I did see that you got an upgrade going anyway !
