I don't think you can just point it at the ISO anymore, at least it
hasn't worked for me that way for awhile, probably back around F9 or
F10.
Instead, I've had to make a directory, mount the DVD with loop, and do
cp -ra <DVDMOUNT>/* <NEWDIRECTORY>, then point the install to that
NEWDIRECTORY>

The same (for me anyway) with NFS.  Although in theory one can just have
a mount -o loop (with some other flags if SELinux is involved), in
practice, for me this has been iffy, so I've just given up and use the
same procedure as above--that is, mount -o loop and copy all files into
a new directory.  

I never filed a bug since Fedora's not a production system for me, and
CentOS and therefore, I presume, RH, will still work if one simply points
NFS or hard disk install to an ISO.

Oz: I really agree.
