Description of problem:

Upon trying to install Fedora 10 - Beta, anaconda skips the network setup screen and goes straight to the timezone setup screen. This results in my not having the correct settings in /etc/sysconfig/network and the eth0 device is hence unconfigured.

Installation medium = Fedora 10 - Beta DVD

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

anaconda version (i386)

How reproducible:

I've been able to consistently reproduce this in a virtualbox environment and on my desktop machine.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installation of Fedora and select defaults all the way
2. After the partitions are setup, anaconda skips to the timezone configuration phase instead of allowing you to setup the network.
Comment 1 David Cantrell 2008-10-05 18:49:01 EDT
There is no networking configuration screen anymore except for prompting you for the hostname.  All interfaces are under the control of NetworkManager.

If you perform a network install, the way the interfaces are configured during installation will be preserved on the target system.

For more advanced network configuration scenarios, kickstart must be used.
