Description of problem:
During installation I am invited to enter network settings, all but proxy
settings. Sitting behind corporate firewall I immediately experience problem

Next, during firstboot I have an opportunity to enter my proxy server data but
these are never reflected in yum config (in Firefox properties neither).
Yum.conf file is misplaced. After copying it to /etc/yum/yum.conf I am ignorant

Yum man page does not contain directions on proxy line syntax. Only by
hit-and-miss way I found it to be
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every f7 installation in LAN behind firewall
Steps to Reproduce:
proxy connection is not configured during installation. Yum configuration after
installation is non transparent.
Installation process is complemented with proxy connection settings. Yum man
page is appended
I mean yum.conf man page of course...
Proxy can also be set in yum.conf and this is specified in the man page
