Just so you have some context as to what's going wrong, the repo
metadata on the CD/DVD has special URLs that point into the images.  The
repo metadata on network installs (and all other installs) do not.  This
is the media://<some giant ID>#<disc num> stuff.

So yeah, running createrepo is the right thing to do.
