Description of problem:
I tried a kickstart install over FTP.  The server supports anonymous FTP, so I
gave it a username of "ftp" and a password of "username@domain.com".

The installer got confused since it translates this as something like
and then tries to nslookup a machine named "domain.com@ftp.server.com".

Since some FTP servers really check for a "valid" email address, this should
probably be fixed.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create kickstart file with FTP user/pass of ftp/user@domain.com

Does it work if you use %40 instead of the literal '@'?
