Detailed Description

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=473803

In F14 we offer various modes of wireless configuration with nm-c-e, that is in graphical stage 2. We don't have loader UI and text mode UI for wireless. For kickstart and boot options, we support only WEP key authentication (wepkey and essid options). We need to add WPA authentication to kickstart.

There is a minor problem with AP selection in GUI (duplicate members of access point list in nm-c-e). In desktop the selection is done with NetworkManager Applet and I'd like to fix the problem by its integration into anaconda (which is also one of options for Anaconda/Features/NetworkReconfiguration ).
