Split up bug... this is now, RHN Proxy installer only.
related to bug 90254

Done... in CVS... untested.
Comment 7 Todd Warner 2004-01-07 23:00:05 EST
actually did exist, it was just called a challenge password and was
never used.

More or less applied bretm's patch.

NOTE, this was really a duplicate of 81237 I just never really put it
together for some reason.
