I found in the f19 notes about using updates=url, so I tried that but 
this is something else.  This is NOT for the updates repo. repo=url 
works for /os/i386/ just fine.  But the install location dialog is 
showing that updates is greyed out.  It takes time to do this' basically 
one try per day.  So HOW do I specify the location of the updates repo, 
or at least get the dialog ungrey so I can add it there?
