Description of problem:
After getting around the FC2 graphical install hanging after
video/monitor probe with a 'linux headless' install, I'm having the
install hang still later with the status bar stuck at 50% "Performing
post install configuration."

I can switch to virtual consoles, but cannot input anything.  Keyboard
led's are responsive.  VC three shows a few mundane messages from the
install at the top of the screen.  At the bottom it shows:
* rhgb installed, adding to boot loader config
* moving (1) to step postinstallconfig
* No pcic controller detected
* self.hostname = mbox.my.domain.com
* isys.py:mount()- going to mount /usbfs on /mnt/sysimage/proc/bus/usb

I haven't found any boot options that appear to make any difference. 
I've tried apm=off, noapic, noprobe, skipddc, acpi=off, pci=noacpi,
smp/up, mem=128M, nofirewire, nousb, nopcmcia.

Rebooting shows it hasn't installed grub yet.  Manually doing that
from a rescue boot gives me a really unhappy unconfigured system.  The
root password hasn't been set (and I can't set it...selinux wierdness?).

I have successfully then done an upgrade of the mostly installed
system with just 'linux headless' and the install completes, but aside
from installing a few packages that were already installed, it doesn't
change anything.  The system boots but it seems like that 50% post
install missing does some important configuration.

Also, RHAS3 installs/runs just fine on this machine, FWIW.  It is an
IBM Intellistation Z Pro, model 6221-42U.

Does this still happen with FC3 test releases?

Closing due to inactivity.  Please reopen this bug if you have further
information to add to the report.

Just to confirm, this no long happened on FC3.
