I believe that the TUI installer should use the same default approach as
the gui installer (TUI default is DHCP whereas GUI is to specify the ip

Adding to our feature request list.  Thanks for your report.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-01-31 23:16:28 UTC
Rather, I think that the GUI should be changed to be like the TUI.  That is, it
defaults to DHCP.  I think most people (at least in environments like corporate
networks and cable modems) are using DHCP these days, so I think it makes sense
to default to that.  Implemented in CVS.  Brock, please verify.  You'll have to
do a CD-ROM install to verify this.
