How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use livecd-iso-to-disk to copy netinst image to USB disk.

Actual results:
Can't find packages to install

Expected results:
Pull package info from online source

Comment 1 Richard Shaw 2010-06-17 00:22:51 EDT
Forgot to summarize changes...

Added logic to differentiate between a full DVD installer and a netinst image.

Added a few sync calls because in the case of a netinst image the copy was getting completely cached and the program status would incorrectly say it was installing the boot loader when it was actually copying data.

Added bootloader configuration section for "netinst" which would correct the stage2= option instead of removing it and adding a repo= anaconda option.

This report has a patch which is related, this needs closing once we get this patch in to git. 

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=590391

These should be merged to work the best for Netinstall.ISO

I committed a modified form of this one. I think the skipcopy test needed to apply to both image types, not just the second type.
