Right now, rescue.img has both stage1 and stage2. If you boot it with 'askmethod',
you can use it as an installer... sort of:

- choosing CD as the installation source will break it
- NFS installs try to use the NFS stage 2
- probably other errors I haven't hit in my 10 minutes of testing

What would be good is to clean it up so that any rescuecd-type image
(combination of stage1 and stage2) can be used as a general installer; point
it at a random tree (with whatever method) and go. This would (in theory)
make it easier to spin updated installers, if necessary, and allows for
further decoupling of the package source from the installer source.

Bonus points for putting the network & install method selection in
the GUI. :)

Okay, in CVS, we use the CD for nfs, hd and url installs.  Still looking at how
to disable the CD choice there.  And then it just requires that you're pointed
at an install tree with a .discinfo and it works happily.

Moving install method selection to the GUI isn't going to happen this time
around, but we got a good chunk of the underlying pieces done to get there
eventually :)
