Thanks for filing this.  For whatever reason, the log files that Denise requested are not being created on either of the 2 VMs I've created.  

Also, just fyi, the behavior during the installation on the 2nd VM was exactly the same as the first, that is it did a network install even though it had a valid DVD available.

Thanks for being persistent about this problem :-)

I've taken the time to reproduce here and filed:

Definitely seems that when anaconda is running under KVM, it isn't
seeing the DVD as a valid packages source.
