Feature #305701, revision 4
Title: allow more customization in "Automatic Configuration"
installation mode

openSUSE-11.2: Duplicate of #303859
Requester: Important

Requested by: Stefan Assmann (assmannst)

In openSUSE 11.1 there's this feature called "Use Automatic
Configuration" which saves you a lot of time during second stage of the
installation. However it makes some decisions which you might want to
make yourself. This could be further improved, explanation following.
In the first stage we have the global overview called "Installation
Settings" where you can ultimately revise your settings. In case of an
"automatic configuration" this panel should also allow to customize:
* basic network settings
* firewall
At the moment the behavior is that network will be configured somehow
YaST thinks it should be right in the second stage and the firewall
will always be turned on, allowing no ssh login after installation.
That gives the good idea of "Automatic Configuration" a bad after-
taste. Having this customizable during first stage is a good step
further down the road of an easy, well integrated installation process
