I've been trying to boot the LXDE spin of F14 to text or VNC install mode using the instructions here:
I've tried "linux0 text" and "linux0 vnc" at the boot prompt to no avail. It always boots to live mode which is no good for the old machine I want to install on.
Could you please help getting a text or VNC install going?

the Live media don't offer text or VNC install, you need to download the
DVD. This also means
* you need a network connection during install because LXDE is not
on the DVD
* you cannot use the package selection of the LXDE Spin but need
to select the software yourself. Be careful: Go through all
menus and unselect the GNOME defaults to not have anything
pulled in by dependencies
* you cannot use text install as it will not let you select
components fine grained.
Thus the only remaining options are VNC, Kickstart and a normal
installation. If you install from DVD you don't have the live system
running and require less RAM.
Kickstart is described in
The kickstart I used for creating the LXDE spin is available at
You will also need the files that are included with the "included"
P.S.: For Fedora specific questions I suggest you use
