I must say that has been my experience -
for some reason, FC5 seems to come up with more errors 
when installing from CD than earlier FC distributions.

(1) I wish They would allow one to re-try
when a file is "not found".
On one computer I tried several times,
and the installation failed at different points on each occasion.
(In the end I installed from the hard disk.)

(2) I think the alternative options (install from hard disk, etc)
should be offered in the main menu,
and not require one to boot with "linux askmethod".
