I tried to install fedora 9 in the exact same environment and it worked fine.
There are a ton of differences between F9 and RHEL5, so that's not really a lot for us to go on. Can you attach a picture of the log on tty3 so we can see what sorts of error messages you might be getting?
If you can please test with a 5.3 snapshot and verify whether this is still broken or not, that would be helpful. If so, please attach the information requested in comment #1. Closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA for now.
