My preferred way of installing Fedora is to install the absolute minimum set of
packages, and then using yum and its knowledge of dependencies to pull things in
as I need them.  Unfortunately, the set of packages I get when I deselect
everything does not include yum, nor any other means of downloading from the
Internet (AFAICT).

This may be more of a request than a bug report, but I really hope you would
consider including yum in the minimal package set.

Minimal is pretty minimal.  You've got rpm (which gives you some way of
downloading packages from the internet)
