Description of Problem:

When doing an install by HTTP, the installer doesn't follow the HTTP spec
correctly and doesn't use HTTP/1.1, effectively preventing the use of
virtual web servers.

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


How Reproducible:

Attempt a web install from a virtual web server.  (Note that apache seems
to default to the first virtual server in a configuration file when
anaconda tries to get the files.)

What install does:

$ telnet rh_src_host 80
GET /url "HTTP/1.0"

What it should do:

$ telnet rh_src_host 80
GET /url HTTP/1.1
Host: rh_src_host

Additional notes:

How should I specify a port number?
