package selection option in fedora 17?

I just tried installing fedora 17 from CD and I noticed that there is no longer any option to choose/edit your packages during the install (which was a really good/important feature). This option was available in the fedora 16 installation CD.

Has this feature been removed? Is it only available using other installation mediums now (if so, which one)? What happened to it?

If anyone knows anything about this and would be kind enough to share I'd really appreciate it, thanks

Are you sure you're not thinking of the DVD? That does have options, however the Live CD version's limited by the CD content size and can't include "extras".

Yeah, I'm working with the Live CD at the moment but I'll try the DVD (I'm pretty sure the fedora 16 live CD had the option to trim unwanted packages through the "Package Group Selection" section of the install process though).

Thanks for the help, I'll try the DVD out when it finishes downloading.
