Description of problem:
I just got a pxe boot setup with the psyche goodies, and set it up to use NFS
and have ISO images on the server.  All went well to start. I selected the
"custom" configuration, since I wanted to do an "everything" install.  When the
package selection menu came up, only the documentation was listed.  I thought
that was very cool that it detected the presence of docs-8.0-i386.iso and
allowed me to load what is there. I usually add these after the install
completes.  I didn't think it was so cool that these were the *ONLY* rpms that
it asked about.  And obviously anaconda crashed shortly thereafter.

the files present in the directory are:


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. put docs cdrom next to disc[1-5] cdrom
2. install over nfs using these isos

Hrmm... for now, "don't do that".

I'll try to get something better for the next release

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
