I've just installed and everything went as you described.
Only problem is with partitioning the hard disk.
I used to have 2 logical volumes for / and /home, and the installation has overwritten
with a single volume for /
It is not too bad since I did have nothing to save, but in the future when I reinstall
I'd like to
During the installation at some point (around the disk partitioning) I had a choice
- use all disk
- replace linux system
- use free space
I chose the 2nd. Was it a bad choice?
Is there a chance to recreate the partitions and reinstall?
These things you mention are all anaconda specific, and you may
be able to get better answers on one of the general Fedora
As for anaconda's text install, it doesn't allow for custom
partition layout. It uses a fixed layout. I believe 'replace
linux system' will put that layout in an existing install, but
not touch other installed systems.
You could try VNC install which allows custom partition layouts,
or you could create new partitions and copy the installed files
