I had installed FC1 on a laptop by booting on the USB FD because I  
couldn't get it to boot on the USB CD.  When I wanted to move to FC2 I  
couldn't boot on the FD anymore so I copied the FC2 boot CD to an image  
on the FC1 HD and did a loopback mount to that, added a line to
grub.conf to point to the new mount and installed FC2 from there.  Once  
I was able to start installing from the CD1 image, the USB CD could be  

It would be nice not to have to do something like this though . . and  
still be able to install from FD using slinky or something . .

Keep up the good work!
