Hi all,

thanks for giving this a try so quickly! Well, I just burnt it on a CD 
and gave it a try. It worked quite well here, so I got a graphical 
screen and was able to use most of the activities.

I'm not sure what might be the reason for the issues you're 
encountering, but I tend to see Rawhide again as the cause.

I also get a gray screen for some seconds after the Fedora progress bar 
disappeared, but then the mouse cursor appears. Hmm...
