Description of problem:
firststart hung when trying to configure RHN without ethernet cable plugged in.
Did not time out after at least 10 minutes. clicking back button caused burst
of disk activity but no visible action.
After hitting ctrl-alt-bcksp it just brought me to the gdm login screen
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
severn 9.0.93 version
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I would have to start over to reproduce
Actual Results: hung
Expected Results: eventual time out message (but not too long), and there
should be an abort button on things like this that await network connection
Changing component to up2date. This behavior occurs even when you run 'up2date'
as a standalone app, so there's nothing unique to firstboot about this.
up2date should probably time out at some point. Having said that, the rest of
the desktop doesn't behave to well either when the network connection is pulled.
