Hi guys,

I wasn't able to finish the complete script yet, but thought I would 
commit a part I have finished for comment.  At the moment, the script is 
somewhat like before, except no more "read"'s to get data.  All is done 
with "dialog --forms" and seems to work well here.  After the form is 
ok'ed, the data is verified, and if an error is found, it returns back 
to the form so it may be corrected.

Hopefully I am not putting _too much_ effort into such a little script.  ;)

Anyways, I am about halfway done with the second part, where one can 
configure a ppp device (modem, gprs, etc) and dial/hang up.  It should 
be finished in a couple days or so.

Thanks for any input you guys can give on the script.  The easiest way 
to test, of course and I am sure you already know, is to start the 
livecd and copy the net-setup from the svn repo.
