Didn't help. Got the same error.
" (initialization/error) An error has occurred while
End of file or stream: "internal input stream"
I also tried doing the same thing to the "init.el" and got the same
results as that reported in my initial post: It complains if the
"init.el" doesn't exist, and if create I create a blank "init.el, it
gives the exact same error as listed above. so it is not content related
-- at least, not by the content of the "init.el".

The file is blank, as reported in my initial message. The only output
being generated is in the "warnings" file and is/remains as quoted back
above. Also, Lisp "evaluations" of both buffers (custom.el and init.el)
produce no errors and never have. Again to reiterate: presence or
absense of my old ".emacs" config file also makes no difference.
It is worth noting, however, that while I've had this problem on my FC4
box since installation, my wife has not and is also running FC4. The
only significant differences between the two is that mine is the
"server" box that talks to the outside world. <shrug>
