I'm going to burn a DVD on a different computer. 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.)
