A user on IRC indicates that a netinstall doesn't work if the user is behind a proxy. Adding three input fields to this screen:
that allow a user to:
1. selct FTP or HTTP from a drop-down menu
2. input an IP address (mandatory)
3. input a port number (optional)
should fix this problem.
The backend should take the input and turn it into a command such as:
setenv HTTP_PROXY http://126.96.36.199
setenv FTP_PROXY ftp://188.8.131.52:8080
Assuming the backend is using csh/tcsh.
The user can assist in testing this functionality.
