Just to get this clear, here are things I learned:

1. Anaconda's screen switching is not what I thought.  To get to the 
command line, one must use ctrl-F1, ctrl-B, 2.  I believe at one time 
ctrl-F2 did the same thing, but it does not now.  Once I discovered 
this, I could start debugging my problem.

2.  My institution uses a very ancient DHCP server that does not work 
with the modern Anacondas at all, so I have to specify, on the kernel 
command line, all of the networking parameters to have anything work.  I 
was using one of our local DNS servers as the only DNS.  This does not 
work and I did not chase it beyond discovering that there were no routes 
available to the installer.  However, if I use the Google DNS, 
there are routes and the installation does succeed.

3.  Somehow, the availability of the routes allows the mounting of the 
repo from the installation CD.

Thanks to those who responded.  I hope this adds to the group's knowledge.
