Steps To Reproduce
1. Start the anaconda installer

1. Boot into your new system and copy all applicable installation disc iso's to your /iso directory.
1. Reboot your system into the installation program using any available method:
- PXE boot into the installer
- Copy $TREE/images/pxeboot/* into your /boot and update /etc/grub.conf to boot the installer
1. Select a language
1. Select a keyboard mapping
1. Select hard drive as your installation source
1. Select the disk partition that houses your disc iso images. Note, this was the disk partition created in step#2 above
