Are you testing a full real DVD or just a boot.iso burned to a DVD?
If it's just a boot.iso, that would explain what you're seeing - there
are no packages on it so anaconda will use a
network source in that case. That would explain booting off a DVD and
then seeing lots of network activity.
However if you're using a fullsize however many gig DVD with a Packages/
directory and all that, then there appears to be a bug
here. We'd need to check the log files to find out what's going on. If
that's the case, could you please open a bugzilla against anaconda and
attach the logs?
