Description of problem:
For every package anaconda does these steps
- read package
- install it
On slower systems (with slow cdrom or netrwork installs) this reduce
install speed. It would be glad if anaconda can do a sort of
read-ahead or package (read package during install of previos
package). This would reduce install time. This option should be
enabled if system has big memory or if hard-disks if big (to fit
installation and read-ahead packages)
