I don't know if this would be considered an issue or not.  However, in
this case, unchecking everything, that is, including everything in base,
still tells me that I require CD1 and CD3.  

There are still many people on dialup.  There are many more who suffer
from bandwidth quotas.  (My guess is that we victims of Time Warner were
only saved because some politician probably has them as ISP.)  :) 

I don't know how many people this affects anymore, since it seems the
majority do go for the DVD (or use a torrent or possibly jigdo) but I've
always been able to just get the first CD, put it on a USB, and install
that way. 

I see boot.iso still doesn't allow to specify a method, (from the bug
report, seems it'll be the next iteration of anaconda that fixes that)
and haven't yet tried the net.iso.  Going to try that one next, again
doing my minimal install, and see how it goes. 

Thanks.
