It brings f11 install directly to VNC mode.
and works for me on daily basis.

# yum install httpd-2.2.11-8.x86_64.rpm

I believe it would install httpd service on your system

# chkconfig httpd on
# service httpd start

It's just much faster for me.

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.

Thanks again.
