Hi Folks.

First, thanks to everyone for your input.  Now on to my rant, rave, and 

I looked at the bug report mentioned previously in the thread, and did 
what it suggested, namely, add the 
updates=http://katzj.fedorapeople.org/. . .  to the boot parameter of 
the install.  This started last night, and it seems to be going as 
slowly as before.  If the dependency check is still at 99% by the time I 
get home, then it will be back to the drawing board.  I may just have to 
bite the bullet and fdisk that drive.  Not the worst of circumstances: 
actually a potentially good thing since it gives me a chance to get rid 
of all the crapola since FC5.
