Description Bill Nottingham 2008-11-06 15:34:25 EST
Provide details here.  Do not change the blocking bug.

It currently says:

  Changes in Anaconda

    * NetConfig in NM -- Anaconda is now using NetworkManager for configuring network interfaces during installation. The previous backend tool was libdhcp, which was a replacement for libpump. Anaconda uses NetworkManager by communicating with it via D-Bus during installation. The move to NetworkManager in Anaconda is still ongoing, but the bulk of existing functionality has been retained. NetworkManager is enabled by default on newly installed systems, so moving to NetworkManager in Anaconda allows the installer to use the same network management tool that the final system uses. The move to NetworkManager brings some changes, most notably the removal of the network interface configuration screen in Anaconda. You are no longer asked to verify the network settings during installation. The screen now simply prompts for the hostname. The settings used during installation are written to the system. 

I'd rewrite it as:

Changes in Anaconda

 * NetworkManager for Networking -- Anaconda is now using NetworkManager for configuration of network interfaces during installation. The main network interface configuration screen in Anaconda has been removed; users will only be prompted for network configuration details if they are necessary during installation. The settings used during installation are then written to the system.
