Did, and tried ftp, always asks for a network connection.

Where can I get the real install 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
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.
