RE: Split Media - A use case

Use case :
PIII 950Mhz system CDROM installed , no DVD, NO USB boot option , no PXE
boot option, local network does not allow DHCP server ( corp rules)
, local net is firewalled from internet via (http | ftp) proxy

Yes it's old
It was running F10 
It _Needs_ split CD to install
Anaconda takes forever because it won't accept proxy info and has to
mutiply time out trying to access unreachable network mirrors

CDs will be much slower than a DVD in terms of read speed. You'll also
have to swap disks out during install (hello 1998). Why do they "want"
to use CDs?

In fact, why are you wasting a DVD or CDs? That's not very green of you.
Give them a USB stick with the DVD install ISO loaded on it so it can be
reused for more useful things.
