Description of problem:
When installing, on rebooting:
When it came time to set the system clock I carelessly clicked on set using
network time, forgetting that our firewall blocked that port.

The system hung, necessitating a power-off to recover.  Not even ctrl-alt-del
worked.  (I suppose I should have tried shift-backspace, etc.  I didn't.)

Next time I set the system time by hand, and installation proceeded normally.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Reinstall from scratch
2.  Reboot
3.  With a firewall that blocks ntp, try to use a network clock to set the
system time.

Can you reproduce this?  The ntp initscript should make a hole in the firewall
for itself.  It works on my test machine.
