Description of problem:
Initiate an NFS install of rawhide. At the repo selection screen, attempts to modify the 'install repo' fail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* Seems everytime
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Initiate NFS install (adjust command below as needed)
# virt-install -n vguest1 -r 1024 --vcpus 2 --os-variant fedora11 -v --accelerate -b br0 -l nfs:ntap-curly.corp.redhat.com:/vol/fedora/rawhide/nightly/rawhide-20091005/x86_64/os -f /dev/VolGroup00/vguest1-disk0 --arch x86_64 --nographics -x "console=ttyS0 serial lang=en keymap=us ksdevice=link ip=dhcp vnc"
2. Proceed to yum repo selection dialog
3. Click edit on 'install repo'
Dialog appears ...
"Unable to read package metadata from repository. This
may be due to a missing repodata directory. Please ensure
that your repository has been correctly generated.
Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for
repository: UIedited_0. Please verify it's path and try again"
Opening the edit dialog on a repo, and just clicking "OK" shouldn't cause any failures.
* See attached screenshot

I believe this should be fixed in version 12.38 of anaconda but I don't seem to be able to test it locally due to bug #527257.
James, please test. Thanks!
