Description of problem:
durring the installation process, I was unable to enter any information other
than the HOST name and whether or not the network interface was DHCP or not, as
well as if the device was started automatically.   With the fields still grayed
out, and Next is selected, dialog boxes appear informing the user that the
information was not filled in.  You can select either cancel to return to that
screen (in which the boxes are still grayed) or you may select Ok to continue to
the next page. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. durring install on the network config page, try and edit the dns, gateway (etc)
2.the fields cannot be written to.
3. click next and error messages are recieved
4. click cancel to return to the network config page.
5.repeat with different options (DHCP/Static)
6. repeat step 3
7. click next to continue and ignore the errors

Actual Results:  fields remain grayed out, and error messages appear when
attempting to proceed to next page.  

Expected Results:  you should be able to enter the information, or select
whether this information is set by DHCP *IF* DHCP is selected as the method of
selecting an IP address for a given Ethernet interface.

I could not reproduce the problem reported here.

Are you saying when you set the interface to not use DHCP, then the Miscellaneous
settings because active, but you could not get them to respond to keystrokes
when you typed in them?
