Anaconda logs of the installation

Description of problem:

I tried to install Fedora 11 Preview in text mode, because I experienced 
problems with mouse input in graphical mode ( mouse input did not work 
properly on some configuration screens like selection of timezone or
disk partitioning, boxes were hard to hit with the mouse )

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: 

always - problems with graphical input only on Fujitsu Primergy RX220

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do an installation of fedora 11 adding boot option text

Actual results:

custom allocation of partitions is not selectable
selection of products is not offered
location of boot record cannot be selected

I finally ended up with a minimal system ( 179 packages )

Expected results:

Installation in textmode should offer similar functionality to an installation
in graphical mode.

This is by design.  Text mode has been simplified to providing an absolute minimum system.  Please see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/NewTextUI for more information.
