net-setup and timeout

Hey Guys,

The net-setup script uses a timeout of 20 (seconds?) when it calls dialog.
Do we really want this? Personally, I don't see a need for a timeout at
all, but if there is a need for it I'm not seeing then perhaps we can
extend the time to a minute or so?

Also, as the script currently is, when the timeout does occur it producues
the following error message:

"Device timeout is not present on this system."

That is rather silly. :)
