The info on hw.physmem in this thread mostly did the trick for me: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&threadm=ee83fe30.0311120931.5a7f871e%40posting.google.com&rnum=1&prev=/groups%3Fhl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26oe%3Dutf-8%26q%3Dinstall%2Bhangs%2Bat%2B%252Fstand%252Fsysinstall%2Brunning%2Bas%2Binit%2Bon%2Bvty0%26btnG%3DGoogle%2BSearch%26meta%3Dgroup%253Dalt.sys.pc-clone.compaq.servers
Setting hw.physmem was the first part of the puzzle. However, as was one of the thread participants, I was getting a fatal trap 12 when I enabled APIC. Just so I could tell myself I'd tried everything, I changed the APIC mode from "Full Table Mapped" (I had had 4.7 installed and running properly set that way) to "Full Table". To my surprise, it worked beautifully!
