Bug#378959: debian-installer: needs option to bypass network config dialog

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

d-i assumes that the user always wants to bring up a network connection
during installation.  sometimes this is not desirable; for example 
when using the rescue mode or when doing a cd or dvd install.

so the problem is that the d-i network config dialog forces the user to 
select at least one of the network adapters to continue (cancel just 
brings up the same dialog).  to bypass network config, i have to select 
one of the network interfaces, then wait for it to not configure.  then 
i can opt to skip network config.   i suggest that there be a button
that allows the user to skip the network config from the network 
interface selection dialog.

i used the latest etch d-i installer available at 

thank you for your consideration.
