FC6-pre dies with 8 minutes to finish - inn hung

Trying to install FC6-pre bombed out in the below ways.

- A GUI install was not possible with a matrox video card. The monitor went out of range in a severe way.
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G200 (rev 01)

- The text install package selection was out of sync with the group selections. I got different packages to select when trying to customize the package selection.

The install almost completed except it hung on installing inn. I don't recall selecting inn, but it is very hard to distinguish what was selected when the groups did not match the desired selection.

A bug report was filed during test3 for the GUI problem. The problem still is there.

I was able to boot the system using my /boot partition on /dev/hda1 from a working previous installation after the install to boot the new failed install on /dev/hdb3. I could not login as root or change my root password even in runlevel 1. I was able to add a new user and set the new user password. The root account simply had an authentication error.

I had better results with FC6-pre than FC6T3 because I ended up getting an exception error early in the install attempt.

I'll file a report for the anaconda failure. The menu selections out of sync with package selection is probably already know,

Obviously I was either onto something, or on something.
