I filed a bug report and referenced the text installer being out of
sync. I'll files a bug report regarding selecting the customizing
packages via the F2 key shows packages from the group different from the
highlighted main group. I figured that this problem could not have been
overlooked. Someone would report or catch this problem.

An option to help the many users trying to install Fedora with the GUI
would be to have a dialog box to allow selecting the "vesa" driver
instead of having the user search around for the video=vesa parameter
given to the installer.

I'll try a graphical install using the video=vesa option. But how many
users are going to think to do this? I was not one of them.
If the GUI install does not work, revert to the text mode installer. If
the text installer does not work, something is being overlooked by the
developers/maintainers. The text installer should work since the GUI
installation is not always possible.
