system-config-packages: why does it need CD?

I'm running FC5T1 and when I run system-config-packages, I get an error:

Installation Tree Not Found: The path /media/cdrom does not look like a 
valid installation source.

I'm wondering why the full CD media should be needed to load the add / 
remove packages listing. I'd expect that the system would have a list of 
packages / product areas stored with the installation. Then once I 
wanted to add a package, it then would ask if I wanted to get it from 
CD/DVD, yum, etc. I didn't see a bug currently on this and wanted to 
hear thoughts on this prior to posting a bug.
