I tried to install Fedora 10 Alpha on a QS21 from DVD media. 

The firmware is able to boot smoothly from the DVD media, but Anaconda doesn't
recognize the usb attached media tray. 
This means that installation of Fedora 10 by using a DVD isn't possible right now:

I just discovered that it works after waiting for about 5-10 minutes...

After removing the attached USB disk from the media tray the DVD drive got
recognized faster.

Now it takes about 10-20 seconds for the DVD drive to be recognized.

Couldn't the installer wait until the usb scan has finished before starting the
installation dialog?

No, we have no way of knowing when the kernel is done scanning USB devices.
