Hardware support on Fedora Server DVD

So yesterday a bug[1] showed up where someone installed Fedora Server
on a laptop using the network install media over a WiFI connection and
after startup did not have the proper packages to use WiFI in the
installed system.

This was part of a conscious decision in the past that WiFI was not
commonly present on server hardware. That being said, do we want to
make it available as an optional comps group and include it on the DVD
media? This will likely increase the size of the DVD (though probably
not by much, since most of the required packages are already required
by Anaconda). I'm leaning towards yes, but the alternative would be to
somehow document the lack of WiFI out-of-the-box better.
