It gets closer, but the basic problem I experience is that anaconda
still seems to expect to have to partition the disk space. I would be
nice to be able to skip this step but it doesn't appear to be
possible. It looks like I'm just going to have to use a spare disk
space for the moment until I either rebuild the kernel on the host
machine to have the correct relevant modules for nbd support. Or hack
anaconda.
