Thanks for your interest. After trying the appends, I gave up, though. I 
needed to get something Linux back up on my laptop, so I reverted to MEPIS, 
which installs without a hitch. I do have FC5 up on a desktop, and I will 
continue to monitor this list, to see if my experience was unique, or whether 
others encounter similar issues. Maybe I'll give it another try when t3 comes 
out. I did leave 40 GB of free space on my external drive...
