* -re1125.nightly

On a machine with two network cards, I selected only one network card to be
activated.  The resulting anaconda-ks had two network lines (is this even
allowed?), with no indication that one should not be activated on boot.

When there are two network lines, how does anaconda chose which one it will use
for its own network config during the install?  If both specify nameserver or
hostname, which one wins?

Can we add an option to the network command to indicate whether or not the
device should be enabled on boot?

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.
