Description of problem:
I tried a kickstart install over FTP. The server supports anonymous FTP, so I
gave it a username of "ftp" and a password of "firstname.lastname@example.org".
The installer got confused since it translates this as something like
and then tries to nslookup a machine named "email@example.com".
Since some FTP servers really check for a "valid" email address, this should
probably be fixed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create kickstart file with FTP user/pass of firstname.lastname@example.org
Does it work if you use %40 instead of the literal '@'?
