User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When you set your network device to not be active at boot, it greys out the
boxes for setting IP/Gateway/DNS.  When you hit next, anaconda throws up a
warning about not entering a Gatway or a primary DNS server.  It is impossible
to enter these things if you have your network device set to not be enabled at
boot time.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start Red Hat Linux 8.0 installer
2.  at the network configuration page, deslect "enabled at boot".
3.  hit next.

Actual Results:  Anaconda throws warnings about gateway/dns

Expected Results:  Becuase network is set to be disabled at boot time, warnings
should be supressed.

Should be fixed.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-24 18:33:46 UTC
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed).  If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
