I too had the idea of using anaconda to install from the live-cd, the idea was to first use a dvd, then eventually find a way to narrow the package list down, to allow for the use of a cd. I think however this may not ALWAYS be the best method. I don't mind having the basic setup on the cd copied directly to the disk, in that manner I don't have to use up a dvd, instead I will only need to download and burn a CD.  So long as we get something like ubuntu's reconstructer to allow each person to EASILY reconfigure the cd to their tastes and their needs. Both ideas are necessary, an all inclusive dvd and a basic cd. It would seem the use of anaconda on the dvd would be a good idea since for the most part people won't want to have ALL that software installed and anaconda allows for that customization.
