I downloaded and burned boot.iso from
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os/images
folder and started to install rawhide and that also failed :(
Am I jinxed? :)

I statred network install and used
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os/
as url to install from.
Installation started ok but stopped at 460 package of 906.

I get an error message:
kudzu-1.2.82-1-i386.rpm cannot be opened :( This is due to a missing
file or corrupt file.

And I have retry or reboot, and retry just shows the same message over
and over again...

uf :(
