Description of problem:
Fresh/clean NFS install from development on download.fedora.redhat.com as of

development as of 20060929 from download.fedora.redhat.com

800x600 instead of trying to fullscreen it. This will be in the next build of
Sorry for spam, but this isn't fixed for me in rawhide's firstboot 1.4.23-1. It
centers, but keyboard isn't working.
