No, I don't think so.

That path should be good on any mirror.

I would suggest grabbing the rescuecd.  It contains what's on the
boot.iso plus the second stage anaconda installer, which you'll end up
downloading if you use the boot.iso anyway.  Another advantage to
using the rescuecd is that it is signed, so you can verify it's
integrity via gpg.  The boot.iso is not signed, and therefore you
can't verify it.

As one example, the rescuecd iso can be found at:
