Description of problem:
When I come to the package selection, anaconda will not allow me to select anything else apart from the default productivity selection. When I try to select Software Development I get a message saying that I need an active network connection in order to continue. I am then invited to set up a network connection.

I have largely followed the defaults, but have selected IPv4 rather than IPv6. I am not connected to a network/the internet.

The machine in question is a Dell D620. The install disc has been used with the text installer on another machine (Acer Ferrari) with no problems (it was attached to the network).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to install Fedora
2.Select IPv4 support
3.Try to select other package options apart from Productivity

Actual Results:
Message saying that I need an active network connection to install any other components apart from Productivity

Expected Results:
I should have been able to install any packages from the DVD.

Additional info:
The DVD is the Fedora 6 Pre-release DVD.

This is a serious problem and will cause chaos for those people who want to install Fedora on a standalone machine.
