Thanks Dustin.  I ended up editin the grub.conf file manually, but
after bootup, I just got an error from GRUB saying it couldn't find my
VolGroup.  Oh well.  Embarked on another reinstall, but the whole thing
just locks up way too much.

I think 32-bit Fedora on 64-bit RHEL5 dom0 is not quite ready to work
yet. :-)  Guess I'll go download 64-bit Fedora...
