Re: Anaconda multiple Ethernet cards question

Today while installing F11 from DVD, I noticed something : if one has
multiple Ethernet cards in his/her computer, if booting with 'asknetwork',
when it comes to configuring the network you are greeted with eth0 :<MAC
address>  and below eth1 :<MAC address>. I think it would be niftier if the
identification string of the card was printed also (eg VIA Rhine III) so
people would know what card to choose and how.
If you've got two network cards of the same kind, they're going to have
the same description.  Also the UI is constrained to something like<70
characters there so there's not really all that much we can display
there.

They're different; and listing the description string looks more important to the user than listing the MAC.
