Gene,

No can do. The hard drive I'd be using to boot from (/dev/sda) has been
reformatted by several aborted attempts to boot using 'linux askmethod'.

Right now I'm trying to copy the DVD image into .../os/images/ using the
<Ctrl><Alt>F2 console. I'm hoping anaconda will recognize and mount it,
allowing me to hit "Retry" and proceed. (Note that in a proper mirror
everything from the DVD is supposed to be in .../os/.)
