Description of problem:

*after* telling AS5 to install via HTTP, it goes ahead and continues 
installing via the booted media, instead of immediately using the HTTP method 
as specified.

For remote-installs - this is very painful, since the boot media is usually 
emulated via iLo or some other method, meaning that it can take upto 24hours 
to read the booted CD, when it was supposed to be reading via HTTP in the 
first place.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot disc1, select HTTP
2. observe the boot continue from the CD without accessing HTTP
Actual results:

uses CD disc1

Expected results:

use HTTP

Additional info:

I have reported this bug before in ES4

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-12-04 20:54:18 UTC
We read the second stage off of the CD because that's going to be faster and
less memory intensive than loading a ~ 70 meg file into memory.
