Boots and starts graphics display on UP1500 (Nautilus chipset)
even if X (Radeon card) is starting so long that it already begins
to make a false impression that it crashed.

Nice but I still have some issues.  On the first console screen I see the
following:
...............
Starting graphical installation....
/usr/lib/anaconda/htmlbuffer.py:180: GtkWarning: Unknown tag 'strong'
  self.buffer.apply_tag_by_name(tag, start, self.iter)
/usr/lib/anaconda/htmlbuffer.py:180: GtkWarning: Unknown tag 'code'
  self.buffer.apply_tag_by_name(tag, start, self.iter)

I am not sure how important that is but something is unhappy.

Later anaconda is not finding any older installations so there is
no option to update; only to install from scratch which may be not
so nice.  It should find in my case at least two installation suitable
for an update and, if I am interpreting logs correctly, it it trying
to check available partitions one by one but somehow it still not
recognizing any as possible /.  Somewhat weird.  I have whatever
I was able to save from boot with an installation CD boot logs so
if somebody wants to have a look please give me a shout.

Actually CentOS 4.2 boot disk has exactly the same problem.

A comment in etc/aboot.cfg on CD, which you are going to see if you
will do 'l' at an aboot prompt, says:

#
# Red Hat Linux/Alpha aboot configuration options:
#
#   0 - Boot the Red Hat Linux installer using a 2.4 kernel
......

Well, this is not "Red Hat Linux/Alpha", even if "Red Hat Linux
installer" is possibly closer to reality, and for sure
2.6.12-1.1448_FC4axp used on that disk is not "a 2.4 kernel".
