Description of problem: Burned the .iso to a CD and ran from the CD. Did not try to install. On exit, mobo network chip was fried. Had to install new network card. Needless to say I am not willing to try and reproduce this.

Let me guess, this was an nVidia chipset. A 2.6.29+ vanilla linux kernel will power down the interface and only those kernels know how to power it back up...

The card is not "fried" if it's nVidia, and newer Fedora kernels don't power down the interface at shutdown.

The upstream kernel developers are ignoring the problem:
