As far as I have seen while being in #centos, most beginners' questions 
(in the context of netinstall) were more or less similar to "what should 
I put in the 'mirror' and 'path' fields ?". Can we patch anaconda so as 
to prepopulate those two without overloading any particular mirrors 
(maybe using somehow the output of mirrorlist ) ?
