Thanks Tim.

I did this, and it stopped objecting. But my machine no longer managed
to find the ftp server at all (coincidence I presume).

So I used NFS (with the loop-mounted system). it's working fine.

There were some other problems:

1) Even though I specified askmethod and selected NFS, anaconda still
detected (and chose) a local installation medium (CD #1), so i had to
reboot and start all over again.

2) The partioning program had a bug, and I was given no option to
continue the installation (restarting the disk partition process
should have been fine), so again i had to reboot.

Still, I have my system now.
