Open a terminal and run...

yum list | grep -vi installed | xargs -L10 yum -y install

xargs will take the packages listed by "yum list" and try to install them 10 at a time.

Just disable packagekit update applet in System>>preferences>>Startup Applications

Also it is possible to install the dvd version from a usb stick providing you have 4g plus one,
see post #14 http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=233052
its for live discs but works on dvd images as well.
