One more thing I propose that besides the check box, it should be *very* 
clearly mentioned that the installer needs to get the packages from the 
internet, so checking this checkbox means you allow the installer to 
connect the internet.

I again repeat the above line since bandwidth is one of the two main 
issues, first being the installer connecting to the internet without 
user's consent.
