Yeah - odd that Fedora is the only distribution to ever have an
installer bug, isn't it ...

Anyway - a better thing to do would be

1) Specify your hardware
a) Motherboard (if you know it)
b) Computer Make (if you don't know motherboard)
c) RAM installed
d) Maker of the video card. Use hardware browser in FC4 to get info
about it.

Then maybe someone might know what is going on, and may be able to make
a suggestion (such an argument to pass when starting the installer) that
will help your experience go a little smoother.
