Ahh - that may be the case but I seem to remember that you have to define
the source for the install at an early stage and before the screen changes?
I think that to define the network install is about the 3rd selection after
Language and Keyboard selection. So changing to X probably happens when the
map comes up to select the time zone?  I may tinker with this on another
machine when I move from f11 to F12 - but it would be nice if the option to
tinker a little more deeply with network settings was available at an early
stage in the anaconda set of steps - I know it is an unusual need during
install though. Mostly I don't have a need to switch MAC address from that
on the NIC but in this case I did need to.
