I am not sure how to do this and did not know it was possible -- there
is nothing obvious in the install menus that suggest this. I do prefer
the 'text' based install.  Also, in the case of my home system, the
external repo would *have* be on the local disk somewhere, since I don't
have any other machines available on my LAN and the the only external
Internet option is dialup.
