Description of problem:
when netinstalling from a ftp site with username/password,
the password is badly encoded into the final anaconda.cfg.
(it seems to be encoded with %XX for each ascii char)
simply remplacing with the correct password manually into ks resolve the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do a netinstall with ftp://username:password@site/
2. copy anaconda.cfg into the netinstall server
3. do a new netinstall with bootparam "linux ks=.../anaconda.ks"
Actual Results: it fails to connect to the ftp server when retrieving rpm files
Expected Results: connection should succeed with correct password.
ks is retrieved with anonymous http

the password as entered when manual install is "yum"
Fixed in CVS - will appear in the next anaconda build after tomorrow's.
