While I also think convenience in standard cases might be a nice thing,
the installer should have minimal occourance of userfriendlyness and
If it wasn't highly-experimental test-images I'd not have waited the
minute of blank screen after it asked for the IP-address, but thrown
it out and tried aynother image. (Or even distri). Especially if I
expect more questions and thus have to think something went seriously

 Even this MacOS I once had to deal with, which did annoyngly anything automatic,
did only ask for ip/netmask/gateway/dns together and never only for an ip-address.
