Installer insists on a mouse when using display=remote:0

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)
Description of problem:
When installing using a remote display, the installer will probe the
local graphics card and mouse. If you don't have a mouse, it will
prompt you to specify a mouse manually or use text only mode. It will
then ignore the selection and correctly open a remote display.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Remove the mouse from the system.
1. Boot from CD 1
2. Type "linux askmethod display=remoteworkstation:0"
3. Follow the prompts to find nfs mounted CD isos.
4. Anaconda starts
Actual Results: Complains that no mouse was detected and prompts you
to specify one or use text mode.
Expected Results: Doesn't bother probing X or for a mouse.
Changed so we don't prompt for mouse type on remote display. We still
have to probe so that we have the information later for setting up X
on the installed system.
Closing out. Please reopen if the problem is still present in recent code.
