I got this to work (at least as far as getting anaconda to run). I bugzilla'd
the problem with getting it to work with a floppy. I was able to burn a
DVD and get it to work though. I have two DVD drives and don't know how
well this would have worked with just one.

As an RFE that probably won't get done, it would have been nice to have been
able to get the updates off the DVD I was using for the install. Unlike
for the network install, it doesn't grab images/updates.img, but rather
all of the DVD. This doesn't work so well, as the install DVD had more
data on it than I have memory. This is a rare enough case, that it probably
isn't worth the effort to do. If it had been a bad rpm I would have replaced
the bad rpm on the DVD, it is only because it was an anaconda file that was
corrupt that I needed to use the updates system. And I am also in the odd
situation of burning my own spins, so that I can get the anaconda changes on
to the install DVD.
