FC4 package installer asks for DVD disc 2!?

FC4 final DVD (passed mediacheck).
I am attempting to install some packages using the package installer/remover thingie. During installation, its stops and asks for disk (sic) 2, which I think is odd since I'm installing from DVD and there's no disc 2. I have no idea which package its expecting to find, but everything I was installing was from the 'GNOME Desktop environment' section.

Am I an idiot or should I report a bug? (or both)

System-config-packages is a buggy app, try installing the packages you need using yum or apt if you have a broadband connection. I know apt can be used with CD's but I am not so sure about yum.

And for your other question, you should report it as a bug. =)
