Actually, now I look at it, I'm not sure always showing the 'mandatory'
pre-hub network spoke is the best option, though I don't really hate it.
When I thought about this bug I was thinking more along the lines of
just having the Network spoke available on the live installer, with only
the 'hostname' element and a text note to use the desktop tools to
configure the network settings...so similar, but not using the pre-hub
spoke. Either way seems like an improvement, though.
