Description of problem:
When installing Fedora 13 I see error this in the serial console when retrieving install.img:
"error 2 reading header: cpio: Bad magic"

Example screen:
Welcome to Fedora for x86_64

   error 2 reading header: cpio: Bad magic

In graphical install this error is still seen, but only the first two letters of it (see attachment).

The error doesn't seem to be causing some problems, it just looks bad.
