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):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Set hostname via DHCP is greyed out and inactive.
Expected Results: Set hostname via DHCP to be an option
Fixed in Rawhide, added to list for RHEL4U1.
