Description of problem:
I would love to see an option that would let anaconda install 
packages from source on a customised kernel.
I would love to see it being possible to configure a kernel the way I 
would like to have it, save it on a seperate small partition, usb 
stick or floppy drive and then install fedora using that kernel. 
Perhaps it would then also be possible to make anaconda use custom 
drivers like the proper nVidia drivers from thesame 
I have no idea how much work this would be since I'm not much of a 
programmer, just a little bit more then a regular pc user.

With regards,
Hans Strijker

anaconda already has support for driver disks for storage and network
drivers that are needed for during the install.  Adding a build
environment isn't practical, though, due to the space considerations.
 Anaconda will get your system installed and then you can do whatever
you want.
