Well, discovered a work around. I used the "asknetwork" option just to 
try it out (since askmethod was not letting the system proceed to the 
questions), selected dhcp auto method and in the next question screen 
chose to go "Back" and lo and behold, the screen it gave me asked me to 
choose the method of installation and I selected URL. I gave the URL and 
the installation is now proceeding.

So it is working, but "askmethod" did not work. Is there a bug?
