The newt installer has a choice to install from "Local Media", but when I choose that option, it just checks all of the local optical drives.

I would like to be able to specify the location of packages.main (I assume that's what it is looking for), e.g. /dev/sde4:/xcp-root  (or even /dev/sdb5:/downloads/XCP-1.1-beta-base-48877.iso)

I am comfortable mucking around in python, but I am a complete newbie to xen and anaconda.

Where in the install.img do I find the right file to hack? Or do I have to go deeper and rebuild something?
