well i have gone through list of packages , unchecking them and
choosing as minimal as possible to make sure stupid anaconda
won't ask for additional disks , and i got it installed now .
but this is exactly the problem , why should the user be
responsible this ?
when anaconda is instructed to use iso images on hard drive
it must check what disc images it finds and only offer to
install packages that can be found on those iso files
it is completely wrong that anaconda goes through all
the installation and if it discovers at some point that
some package is missing it would abort ALL the installation
canceling 30 minutes of work .
and there is no describtion about how rpms are
distributed between the five disc images which
is also very wrong , all mirrors must also
provide documentationa about what iso files contain
