Yes, I think Alpha is too early to require PXE to work. I'm fine with
Beta. In general I think we need to be fairly loose with Anaconda and
Alpha -- as long as there is some way to boot the installer I'm happy.
We currently don't see alot of installer testing in rawhide so the
period before Alpha is too short to expect everything to be working.
