Using the torrent image requires initiative to get those updates,
and you get them via the network anyway.

The http/ftp functionality in the current (at least as of t2/t3) anaconda
is unusable because it won't fail over between mirror sites when a package
is missing (much the same was the CD needs to fail over to the net too).

Maybe it works in the USA but the UK mirrors are never quite in sync enough
for this to work with anything not at least 3-4 days old.

 Same problems here in southeast USA.  This last Thurs..Sat, all I
got was repeated error messages about mirror sites.  There doesn't
seem to be any provision (in the gui) to specify additional mirrors.

 I Finally got a clean update on Sunday.  This last batch cleaned up
a lot of issues I was seeing.
