  i have to admit, i don't remember at this point.  what i do remember
is a (sort of) similar issue when the install process demanded that i
have a network interface before i needed one, and hung waiting for it,
and there was no way of telling it to just give up and move on.

  vaguely, i might have had the same problem at that bugzilla point.
even though i wasn't on the net, i asked to file that bug with
bugzilla, a dialog box popped up asking me to configure eth0, at which
point i *believe* i wanted to just say, "never mind, i'm not on the
net, forget the whole thing," but i think it was too late and i wasn't
allowed to back out.

  i'm typing this from memory, so i might be wrong.  so the question
is, if you opt to file a bugzilla report, and you're asked to
configure eth0 to permit that, is there a way to change your mind?
