A few comments on the install.
On the bad side
1)I386 dvd Installation without fedora repository failed because it was 
missing jwhois
2)Installation with dvd and fedora repository failed - could be faulty 
media but
    a) why wasn't I given the option to continue - module was not 
critical (some palm-pilot module)
    b) why wasn't the fedora repository used as a backup for unreadable file
3) Installed fedora release notes for fedora 10

On the good side
1) Broadcom network wireless "just worked"
2) Even though I did an install with erase of root partition it picked 
up my passwords from home partition so that it can connect to encrypted 
wireless network (prompted for key ring)
