There was another problem too...

When Anaconda had finished installing, it appeared to hang at installing 
one of the selinux packages (100% complete) and never proceeded to 
rebooting or whatever follows.

Oh, the screen displayed as black on black. However, I could see what 
was there with a screen shot (taking it made the display work for or so 
little time) and then pasting it into Paint.

On resetting the machine, all seemed fine.

However, all my problems with F12 have been resolved by installing 
Debian Squeeze instead.
