Description of problem:
anaconda terminates if it receives a 'connection refused' from ftp site on net
install. since installs over ftp are typically done in our shop by mounting a
cd for direct access, inetd/ftpd must be stopped to swap CDs. as late as version
7.3 anaconda would retry the request until the ftp server was restarted on the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.english install of 8.0
2. ftp install
3. start/stop remote ftp daemon when files on first cd have been installed.
Actual Results: anaconda crashed, checking alternative output (alt-F3) showed

'connection refused' and aborted.
Expected Results: should have tried to reconnect (as was the case in versions

This is handled sanely in our current codebase (we retry five times, if it
fails, pop up a dialog saying there might be a problem, but let you retry)
