Description of problem:
I tried a kickstart install over FTP.  The server supports anonymous FTP, so I
gave it a username of "ftp" and a password of "".

The installer got confused since it translates this as something like
and then tries to nslookup a machine named "".

Since some FTP servers really check for a "valid" email address, this should
probably be fixed.

Does it work if you use %40 instead of the literal '@'?
