The problem is that while trying to configure the network before
loading modules make a lot of sense for non-i386, it makes almost no
sense for i386. For i386, configure network should be right after
"install kernel and modules".
What I think we should do is:
at the install kernel and modules step, offer alternate of configure
after kernel/modules step, if network not already configured,
Sound good? Any volunteers?
