Oh, this is because udev isn't reporting an ID_FS_TYPE for any of your CD/DVD drives. anaconda keys off that to know what filesystem is present. Since there's nothing that reports an iso9660 filesystem, there's no apparent CDs/DVDs to install from. Hence, we have to go to the network. We already have a bug tracking this situation, so I'll dup it there.
