I am afraid this didn't help. I used a mirror on another DomU, as I don't have a webserver running on Dom0 ( ;o) ).
However, I tried using the VNC install option, as presented by the
installer and that allowed me to configure what I wanted and a seemingly okay vm resulted, so I would say there is a bug in the non-graphical/non-vnc installer of Fedora 11.
I still don't get all usual the kernel output until it got to the interactive part, but that may be normal on Fedora 11.
