Description of problem:
Blank network settings upset anaconda, and anaconda crashes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot through the Installation CD 1
2. At the boot prompt, type "linux rescue" and press Enter.
3. At the "Choose a Language" window, press "OK" (leave the default
language 'English' as it is)
4. At the "Keyboard Type", press "OK" (leave the default 'us' as it is)
5. At the "Setup Networking" window, press "Yes"
6. At the "Network configuration for eth0" window, press "Back"
7. At the "Cancelled" window, press "OK"
8. At the "Miscellaneous Network Settings" window, press "Back"
9. At the "Network configuration for eth0", press "Back"

Actual Results:  Observe that the anaconda installer crashes. 

Expected Results:  May not crash, of course :).

Additional info:

In the BSOD screen :), I see these error messages:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 596, in ? rescue.runRescue(rootPath,
not rescue_nomount, id)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/rescue.py", line 199, in runRescue

you may safely reboot your screen

(Of course those lines were all over the display, I arranged them as
much as I could.)

Thank you.
