The CDROM drive on the laptop is indeed a bit flaky these days.

I re-seated the drive several times. 
Finally, I was able to use the "FC-development-i386-rescuecd.iso"

As suggested by John Reiser, I will try an install directly from
RawHide.

Next, I am attempting an FTP install from:
ftp://ftp.uninett.no/pub/linux/Fedora/core/development/i386/os


I hope this will go okay.  At this point at least Anaconda is running.
I am crossing-my-fingers. :)



Thanks,
Ernest
