http install breaks

Description of problem:
I'm trying to install directly from ftp.redhat.com (mirrors I've found only have the ISOs).
I have this line in my ks file:
url --url http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/beta/taroon/en/as/i386/
It successfully fetches
but then it requests
Of course, the host "pub" does not exist.
Note that it does request the updates image correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I can never understand this section. It seems clear to me what you need to do;-)
2.Create a ks file with that "url" statement
3.try to install using it
Actual Results: Anaconda tries to fetch the hdlist file from a bogus host.
Expected Results: Anaconda should get it from ftp.redhat.com
I can probably circumvent this by creating a host called pub.demo.room and configuring Apache to pass the stuff along.
I don't think a lot of your severtiy classifications. I think the word is "critical."
I just did an install using the URL you provided w/o any problems. Anything
else you know of which might have affected the install?
For example, are you possibly going through a proxy of some sort?
I'm using transparent proxy.
The python library is using the bogus http 1.1 header
I cirvumvented it with iptables magic to force traffic into a local Apache, and
configured that apache with a vhost name of pub, and using the proxypass
capability to reroute the requests correctly.
Should be fixed in newer code
Closing MODIFIED bugs as fixed. Please reopen if the problem perists.
