Skip host name lookup if no DNS is entered

Anaconda and boot.iso as of 2004-08-09, assuming this is
On my small home network I do only use an external DNS. Thus when
doing an NFS/FTP/HTTP installation I do not enter a primary nameserver
in the "Configure TCP/IP". Still anaconda is trying to look up the
host name for the machine. Since there is no DNS server providing the
machine with a name this fails. You could thus save the time spent
searching by skipping this step and setting a default host name.
Guess this needs to be fixed in loader2/net.c. Maybe loaderData->noDns
is not set if the DNS string is empty?
Sure, committed to CVS
Works fine for me. Thanks for this quick fix.
