From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
I do HTTP net installs using a static IP, but want the installed PC to do DHCP once it boots for real.  When I get to the 'Network Configuration' screen, I click the 'Edit' button to change eth0 to DHCP.  This is fine.  The option to 'Set the hostname' to 'automatically to DHCP' is greyed out.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:


Actual Results:  Set hostname via DHCP is greyed out and inactive.

Expected Results:  Set hostname via DHCP to be an option
