Description of problem:
Anaconda should have the ability to ask a username and a password to do
pppoe/pppoa/isdn/etc.. connection for adsl/cable/etc.. to make an installation
This would be lighter to do this than to download all iso....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot on a floppy
2. ask for ISP username & password.
3. connect through pppoe/pppoa/isdn (rtc??;)
4. download anaconda images, do the installation downloading the packages
anaconda could begin the download of Very-Important-Packages (like glibc and
kernel) while the user is answering the traditionnal questions (partitions,
bootloader, x configuration...)
I would recommend you download the ISO images with an existing network
connection and install from hard drive. We have no plans to configure anything
beyond a simple ethernet connection.
