Description of problem:
when netinstalling from a ftp site with username/password, 
the password is badly encoded into the final anaconda.cfg.

simply remplacing with the correct password manually into ks resolve the problem.

Actual Results:  it fails to connect to the ftp server when retrieving rpm files

Expected Results:  connection should succeed with correct password.
