	It claimed to have completed, and told me to reboot, without ever 
ejecting the DVD, nor telling me to remove it.

	I pushed the reboot button, and it did -- into install mode. I 
stopped that, took the DVD out, and tried again. It got as far as 

"GRUB _" in the upper left corner, and hung there.

	I put the DVD back, called for rescue mode, and tried editing 
grub.conf, in very minor ways -- removing rhgb, and little or nothing 
else. Same result.

	I tried again with the DVD, telling it to boot from local drive. 
This time if displayed 

"Booting from local drive


	-- and hung again.
