Description of problem:
One of the installer step is similar to this one â http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/fedora-install-guide-en/fc4/figs/net-config-dhcp.png In "Miscellaneous Settings" user can provide IP settings of gateway and DNS servers.
Try typing for example 192.168.0.1. After "192" you have to press TAB or use your mouse to place cursor in the next left field. IMHO this could be done automatically after typing third number.
It would be also nice if keyboard arrows could change mentioned position of the cursor. For instance, after typing "0", left arrow would place cursor in the next left field.
Oh, if you place cursor in prevoiusly filed field, numbers should be selected (?) so you will not need to use "backspace" or "delete" to enter new value.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
