 I wonder if it should now be fixed. With the recent sysinst, you have a
 configuration menu where you can configure network for your running system.
 This still won't fix *this* issue exactly, but it provides the option. The
 old Configure network is then only for the running installer, and does not
 affect the installation you're operating on.
