media for install from DVD?

And as a side question, why would anyone create a DVD for net install,
when there is a small ISO image which does that?

I forgot to mention that FC14 installs just fine on this hardware.

Did you use this link as your torrent:

http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/torrents/Fedora-16-x86_64-DVD.torrent

Did, and tried ftp, always asks for a network connection. And a few others have reported that fc16 doesn't install without a network, based on a question in a chat room.

Make sure you're not asking to install things from external or "extra"
repos during your install. That's the only time I can think of that
might require a network connection during an install from the DVD.

I don't get to ask to install anything, I get a pop-up on the screen which says the install needs an active network connection, and won't proceed without it.
