drakx-net code is used everywhere (installer, mga_applet, ...)
so we still have to maintain it in order to set up network
while installing.

so we would have to transform drakx-net basecode into
something that relay back data from NM.

Dunno what does anaconda (RH installer), does it set up
network on his own or does it uses NM?
