Description of problem:
When booting to FC3T1, disk 1, choosing "linux askmethod", and
selecting a network install (ftp or http), when it gets to the stage
at which it should load up the anaconda gui, it loads/installs from
the CD, and NOT from the network source specified.  Works fine when
booting from boot.iso instead of disc 1.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot to FC3T1 CD 1
2.linux askmethod
3.attempt to install from a network source (ftp/http)

Actual Results:  Installation started from CD

Expected Results:  Installation should have started over network

It'll actually do the installation of packages from the network
source, we just do an optimization and use the second stage of the
install located on the CD to minimize the amount of stuff that has to
be downloaded.
