Oh thanks, you are right.  I didn't establish a connection during
installation, but I did establish a connection manually on my installed
system by enabling the device from the .  I didn't check whether
'Options' was greyed out prior to activating my connection.  Let me
repeat the procedure...

Confirmed, 'Options' seems to only be available when a NIC has been
activated.  I presume you could manually run 'nm-connection-editor' to
setup some NIC details ahead of time.  Otherwise, if you don't have a
DHCP server, I'm *guessing* you can activate the device ... and then
select 'Options' while the device is searching for an IP.
