Peer cert error during netinstall

I'm hitting an issue with netinstall and DVD install on F15 i386 (tried 
TC2, 20110220 nightly) that I can't reproduce on a VM. I'm going to try 
another physical machine to verify that it isn't HW specific but I was 
wondering if anyone else has seen it:

I get through the installer without issue until it tries to grab repo 
information (if updates are enabled for the DVD). At that point, I get 
an error message:

Unable to read package metadata. This may be due to a missing repodata 
directory. Please ensure that your install tree has been correctly 

Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) to repository: fedora. 
Please verify its path and try again.

When I look through the anaconda logs, I see:
INFO anaconda: Error downloading treeinfo: [Errno 14] Peer cert cannot 
be verified or peer cert invalid

I can file a BZ for this but wanted to get a better handle on the cause
