Screen Shot showing pxe tree repo being added manually.

Description of problem:
When Install is done from CD/DVD at the repo modification GUI there is the option of a Media-Repo.  However when Install is done from pxeboot the Install tree from which vmlinuz and initrd is drawn must be added manually to use it as a repo.  Would like to see pxe-source-tree as a repo like Media-Repo.

I think I explained this in another bug report, but this information is simply not available to us.  pxe gives us no ability to discover this.  If you need it, add it to the boot args in your pxe config file with repo=.
