I did a fresh install choosing KDE only --this deselect the gdm package
from the X Windows System group. The problem persisted even though
there was no gnome or gdm in the picture.

I reinstalled once again choosing GNOME. The problem persisted.

So I logged in as root.
In both occasions I tried your suggestion to run firstboot manually, and it
failed with an error:
"-bash:/usr/sbin/firstboot:/usr/bin/python2:bad interpreter: No such
file or directory"

Effectively speaking, the python interpreter is not there.
There is a empty link: "/usr/bin/python2 -> python"

BTW, this is Kernel 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686. It doesn't say beta in there.
