Description of problem:
During the install of beta3 I was unable to type into several of the text boxes
in the network setup panel. I had clicked on the option enabling a non-dhcp
network configuration but then was unable to type anything in.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:

I wish I could recall what happend prior to the network control panel that might
have wedged things.

In any case, I gave up trying to non-dhcp configure the network and canceled out
of the setup area and reset the 'use dhcp' thingy.

Later on, I got stuck again, this time when the installer wanted a root
password. None of the text boxes would work. I tried adding root to the user
list (because that did work), but it wouldn't let me add root :-\

The work around I finally came up with was to right click over the text area and
select the 'select all' menu item (or whatever its called...). That *did* move
the focus to the text box and then everything was happy. Tab worked, etc.
