Description of problem:
I installed F12 alpha from the DVD and had the impression that the
network (LAN) is used during installation. So the installation was
awfully slow.

For confirming this, I tried to install again after having

installation was cancelled by anaconda (after the install partition had been

Oh, this is because udev isn't reporting an ID_FS_TYPE for any of your CD/DVD drives.  anaconda keys off that to know what filesystem is present.  Since there's nothing that reports an iso9660 filesystem, there's no apparent CDs/DVDs to install from.  Hence, we have to go to the network.  We already have a bug tracking this situation, so I'll dup it there.
