RHEL4: system-config-netboot, mouseover of kickstart field, help text bug

2. Go to Configure => Network Installation
3. Click Add in spawned window
4. Mouseover the new Kickstart input field.

Also getting GTK deprecation warnings (gtk.mainloop) when launching and quitting
system-config-netboot from a terminal.
From dwalsh: "The kickstart field should say: Enter the kickstart file to be
used for this install. Kickstart files can be created using
