choosing additional packages fails if not using dhcp.

Description of problem: for my attempts to install FC6 with a static set network
config, if you choose additional packages (main options are office productivity,
web server, something else then another secion for additional components)
anaconda fails with error messages about being unable to retrieve network
config. simple work around, use dhcp and reconfigure network after install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: load fc i386 disks, configure network parameters and attempt
to install all available software.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot install cd.
2. configure static network parameters during install (e.g. set host name, turn
off ipv6, set ipv4 address, mask, hostname, gateway, nameserver)
3.attempt to choose all possible sources for install.
anaconda bails with errors about unable to get network config.
using dhcp during install seems to resolve the issue.
