Description of problem:
The text install dialogs do not give the hardware address info when
configuring multiple ethernet interfaces, so the user has no idea
which is which.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot: linux text from CD-ROM FC3-re0903.0-i386-disc1-ftp on a box
with more than one ethernet interface.
Actual Results: The dialogs "Network Configuration for eth0" etc. do
not tell the hwaddr.
Expected Results: The dialogs "Network Configuration for eth0" etc.
should give the hwaddr of the interface so that the user can tell
which is which. Ideally, the PCI device name (such as "Intel
Corp.|82559 InBusiness 10/100" which kudzu puts into
/etc/sysconfig/hwconf) should be given, too.
is the version in FC3-re0903.0-i386-disc3-rtp.iso/Fedora/RPMS .
We should show the description (ie, "Intel Corp.|82559 InBusiness
10/100") if it can be determined. Unfortunately, it can't always. We
don't do the hwaddr right now, but making that change would break the
string freeze. Marking for FC4.
Cant you break the string freeze for these kind of quick fixes if
