Actually, if memory serves, the FC4 DVDs that worked were burned on this other computer. I did try last night to do the install in text mode. The install gets past the grub update and starts installing packages but eventually fails (early on) saying a package is corrupted. This happened with both DVDs and I believe both FC5 DVDs were made on the same burner. (This also happened with one of the DVDs and the other identical system a few months ago when I first tried to upgrade to FC5.) Rick B.
