Done in patch series v4

My suggestion is to make two radion buttons like for LXC containers (os 
or app container)
1. This is the main choice and user should see it first
2. In case of container we disable all radio buttons below (local, 
network,pxe, etc) because
there is another step in the wizard where user can choose template name.
Now it's just a text box, but in the future we will add a drop box with 
all template names, which are present on the host.
Also we'll add text box for setting default password for container on 
this step.

If we do it in combo box like for Xen, it will be a bit confused for user.
Because he sees that all installation methods are disabled and at the 
same time
combo box is hidden in "Architecture options"  which are collapsed.
