Installing FC12 on an IBM pSeries 9113-550

I am attempting to install fedora on an IBM pSeries 9113-550 Server. I insert the installation DVD (It is the PPC version) and get to the boot: prompt. The check disk screen appears, and then I get the Welcome to Fedora followed by the language selection (where I select English). I then get the following:

Welcome to Fedora for ppc

On my screen, the characters do not look funny like they do above (clipboard didn't copy the lines correctly). Everything looks normal on my screen.

Now, I have looked over Bug 566722 which details what I am seeing. However it says that it is resolved in FC13 (Which isn't available for PPC yet) or in the newer release of anaconda.

Is there anyway to get around this problem now with FC12 PPC?
