If i understand you correctly, you mean to use the "install to directory" 

RedHat did have such a beast. I personally never used it, but i did see it 
in the source in an older version of anaconda.

I just took a 30 second look, and i did not see anything about it in 8.0 
source. This doesn't mean that it is not there, only that i was unable to 
quickly confirm the option.

install the main anaconda package and have a look. I hope it is still in 
there in case i ever need it...:)
