[CentOS-devel] Anaconda improvement for network installs

Today I got a nice feature request from an OpenSUSE friend :)

When doing a network installation, it could be useful to have a
centos-mirror pre-registered into the installation form so that you do not
need a second system (or a reboot to your previous OS) to look up what the
correct mirror address is.

The actual suggestion was to have a pull-down list of mirrors per country,
but with our mirror-setup a single entry would most likely do anyway. Plus
it keeps the changes to anaconda down to a minimum !

This maybe something that we could take with us for CentOS 5.2 (and 4.7
and a 3.9 respin ?)

PS I know I have been in a similar situation in the old RH9 days :)
