Description of problem:
The network install program connects to ftp site, downloads something, and then
presents an installation screen.  The selections are "back" and "install beta" I
believe, but the highlighted selection is backwards.  Apparently you cannot
select to install the beta and proceed, I tried it a couple of times and it will
only reboot the computer. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.download bootnet.img and create boot floppy
2.boot pc using bootnet.img floppy
3.proceed through install steps, select ftp install, enter ftp info
4.selections to install beta do not work properly, they take you back and reboot
your pc

Actual Results:  ftp install stops and pc is rebooted

Expected Results:  ftp install should continue and succeed

Additional info:

Just try to perform an ftp install, the problem will be obvious

this is the bug with colors, they are wrong.

You're selecting Exit, not Install

Indeed, this isn't really a bug with the buttons, but a larger bug with the way
that newt is dealing with the utf8 locale. Closing this out.
