This is your workaround:
title Install Rawhide (hd0,13)
     kernel (hd0,2)/fedora/vmlinuz repo=http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/fedora/development/17/i386/os gateway= dns= graphical ip= netmask= hostname=gx28b noselinux noipv6
     initrd (hd0,2)/fedora/initrd.img
It is a legacy grub stanza with three lines, including the title?
The (hd0,13) in the title is documentation only?
Except for the repo option, the network options refer
to the system on which F17 is to be installed?
The kernel and initrd images come from
http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/fedora/development/17/i386/os/isolinux ?
hostname=gx28b means that if your comoputer says b82xg,
it will return to the fifth dimension?
Mine has an ip address, but no externally visable name.
Does that mean I can't use this?

11.1.5. Specifying the Network Settings
Normally, anaconda prompts you to configure a network interface if one is needed during installation. However, you can provide network settings with options at the boot: prompt as follows:

     the IP address for system 
     the netmask for the system 
     the IP address of the network gateway 
     the IP address of the network DNS server 
     the network device to use with these settings
