Epilogue - turns out the cdrom drive was bad.  I kept getting 
failed reads during subsequent attempts, so I thought it was 
a bad hard disk.  Grabbed one from my pile of spares, still 
had the same problem.  Swapped out the cdrom drive for 
a new one, problem went away.

But now I have another question - what would be the "proper" 
way to upgrade from FC2 to FC3.  Can I just change repos 
for ATrpms and upgrade my kernel to an FC3 one?  

I've got my backend up to .18.1, now I need to get my two 
netbooted frontends up to .18.1, but they are still on FC2 
with the Ctrl-Enter Qt problem.  I'd like to go to FC3 and 
eliminate that issue altogether.  Plus, since the backend is 
at FC3, I'd like to have the frontends at the same distro
