Do you have a RFE filed on this?

No, because I've never needed this to work since our upgrades are all done via nfsiso mounts. One I can boot into the new system I use yum to get the remaining updates, and the yum proxy support works fine (well except for BZ#484491).

If all anaconda upgrades are going to be online then I'd also add in the ability to configure network cards since all of our switches have only one forced mode (not my choice!) and this isn't detected correctly by the broadcom ethernet drivers. Trying to run an upgrade over a connection configured with the wrong duplex setting would be truly painful. Again I have ethtool fixes in place once the new system boots, but they're not there in anaconda.

Can anaconda handle wireless network connections for upgrades?

Simon.
