Description of problem:

1. For no apparent reason, gd would not install

2. Where I was told I could Control-Alt-Delete,
   I could not, and had to hard-reboot.

3. A number of times I was told that I did not
   have enough room on the disk.  It would be
   nice to have a root shell open, in order to
   delete files, and be able to continue.  It
   takes a _long_ time to get to that point,
   after an additional reboot or two.

4. It would be nice to have an _initial_ time
   estimate for the install.

5. I found that the time estimate was highly
   inaccurate (and nonlinear).

Reassigning to anaconda as it seems to be an installation problem, not
a problem of the gd package itself.

Read ya, Phil
