Install with Anaconda f18 in VirtualBox

This install is used when you want to install a fedora 18 desktop to a hard-disk; Virtualbox HD or a 8 GB USB.
A similar but simpler installer is entered in booted Live CD's using the command liveinst in root sugar-terminal(su) or other root terminal.
this differs from the installer on fedora 17 or older versions
