I know what he's talking about.  This screen needs to be reworked
anyway.

No please don't.  I already have a bug for this.

That button is completely gone for F13.

I have a mail from Mo about the bootloader screen that I need to get
around to.  That should help things out.

Of course, you wouldn't have to know what a bootloader is if you hadn't
gone to the partition customization screen.  The bootloader setup stuff
is completely skipped unless you choose to customize/review partitions.

It seems silly to me that the user should care if a repo is remote or
not as long as it works.  Anyway, highlighting the repo and clicking
edit would bring up a dialog showing you that it's http://whatever.

Only enabling repos if we're on a network install is rather inconsistent
behavior and I'd rather not do it.

I don't think we have the information to estimate this.  What's
happening is that package headers are being downloaded so we can do the
transaction test, and I'm not sure yum provides us with the information
to know how much we've done vs. how much we have left to do.
