Unless I'm losing my mind completely, I'm fairly certain that I updated
two laptops which do not use a wired ethernet connection, to F16, by
burning an ordinary DVD image, and booting it up.

Thanks, this is not an update, it's a full install on a machine with a new hard drive (and some data drives I tell the installer not to use). At the point where it is about to write the boot sector it asks for a network connection, which it doesn't have. Tried booting from optical DVD, tried from DVD converted to USB flash, same behavior.

Did your installs by any chance use wifi instead of wired and do networking over that? I don't have that option, network install isn't possible in this case. The only network connection would be over a dial connection on a BAD rural phone line, and would require setting up an account to do that.
