This is a better solution. Instead of asking as a prompt box, a checkbox 
would be a better option.

I understand that it's not so easy. I have always appreciated the work 
of ubiquity developer's work as I find Ubuntu's installer the simplest 
of all distros and Operating Systems.
This small checkbox can solve a lot of woes and lots of grievances too, 
besides saving costly bandwidth in developing countries.
