Description of problem:
Installation fails when trying to get hdlist2 when using non-anonymous 
ftp. This is with a kickstart install.

In screen 3 (alt-F3) the password shows up "percent-hashed", and it 
seems as if the FTP server is giving Error 500.

It has already got some files down via non-anon ftp.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure using kickstart and FTP
2. Bootup machine (this was using PXE and an NFS'd ks.cfg)
3. in the ks.cfg, use a URL with username/password

Actual Results:  Fails install

Expected Results:  Downloads from the FTP server continue

Additional info:

URL line in kickstart config was akin to :
url --url

Just to confirm, this works fine using anonymous.

Not wishing to be a pain, but what is bug 86492 on about (what is NPACI)? I'm 
not sure it is the same (unless there is some further information that is not 
in bugzilla).

There doesn't seem to be any mention of non-anon ftp.

Just curious
