I've found similar problems installing a fully-virtualised RHEL-4 onto
FC-5; RHEL-3 installs fine.

It seems that the IO emulation in Xen-3.0.2 (which is what FC-5 is
using) has some problems in these cases.  The rawhide kernel follows the
upstream xen-unstable development branch, and that one works fine for
RHEL-4 FV installs for me; does that help for you?
