Combining reauthentication/deletion options in one luci display can cause user confusion (usability - post RHEL5 GA)

Description of problem:
Combining creation/deletion options in one luci display can cause user confusion
(usability - post RHEL5 GA)
The 'manage systems' display allows users to create/authenticate new storage
systems and delete existing clusters and storage systems. Depending on the
user's screen resolution and the number of clusters/storage systems defined, the
button the user must press to perform a deletion may or may not be displayed
without scrolling. This can lead to the problem illustrated in the screen shot
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In screenshot #1, the user is attempting to delete a cluster definition. If
the cluster name is selected and the submit button is pressed, an error is
correctly raised that the user has not specified a host. This is because the
submit button is tied to the node creation/authentication action.
2. See screenshot #2 - the 'remove selected systems' button is what the user
should have pressed - but it was not visible until the user scrolled the display
See the screenshots.
We should find a way to better separate the creation/deletion actions - or
disable a button until its corresponding data fields are filled in.
This is not a blocker or a problem that we should work on until after RHEL5 GA.
