There shouldn't be a need for this, since it no longer exists.  Just
boot and go (or that's the theory).  The only question should be where
do you want to install packages from.  That step will happen during the
graphical reposetup portion of the installer.  Of course, this is why we
test, so we can shake out any issues that slipped through the cracks.

Hope that helps answer your question!
