Description of problem:
The installer gives some misleading feedback when loading anaconda
which makes it appear to be doing a local install even though you've
selected HTTP install.

I booted with "linux askmethod" off of the first install CD and chose
HTTP as the media to install from.  I was prompted for a web site name
and directory, which I entered.  After hitting OK, a message came up
with the title "CD Found" and prompted me to test the CD media.  I
chose to Skip this since I was doing an HTTP install (I had also
tested it earlier anyway).  It then said "Local installation media
detected", which led me to believe it was doing a CD based install
instead of HTTP.  I let it continue to see what it would do and it
proceeded with an HTTP install.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot off of a CD with "linux askmethod"
2.Choose HTTP install
3.Enter the requested information (web site, directory, etc.)

Actual Results:  When anaconda starts, it seems to indicate it is
doing a local CD install instead of an HTTP install.  A message is
shown that says, "Local installation media detected".

Expected Results:  A message such as, "Loading anaconda from CD for
HTTP install" or some other indication that it was *really* doing an
HTTP install would alleviate confusion.

It's after the string freeze so I can't change it right now. Targeting
for FC3
