I have done KDE-only installs and had firstboot run ok.  Can you look
in /var/log/messages and see if there are any debug messages in there
after firstboot has failed to run?
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2004-02-03 18:10:24 EST
I just did a KDE-only install with FC2 test 1 and firstboot ran just
fine.  However, a number of gnome packages got installed due to
package dependencies.
