This is not something that Anaconda can help you with.

The Live Workstation DVD is not downloading packages for install but it instead copying image which was created during the DVD creation. So if in time of the DVD creation there was 5.2.16 as latest version available than this will be used during the installation.

This will give us possibility to install even without the internet connectivity.

In case you want the latest packages, you can install from netinst.
