Dial-up support when installing over HTTP

even when using the latest available boot.iso CD, there is no way to install
Fedora if you are on dial-up DSL. I have two ways (new: dsl usb modem [probably
too proprietary] / old: use my old ethernet LAN modem), so the latter would
suffice, but currently AFAICS there is no way to install via internet if you're
The connection is broadband, of course, so speed is no problem; the only
problem is that the installer expects a permanent internet connection when
probing, hence it will not find my setup, as I require authentication (logon +
password) for internet access.
The only way out for now is use the four iso CD images.
Yet I'd appreciate a way to install via internet. Would this be a big thing to
implement or a greater effort?
Thank you for the report. Changing status to assigned
Doing a network install over dial up is going to take enough time that you're
better off getting ISOs from somewhere else. Trying to support this is going to
be a major effort for very little gain.
