Exactly. At present, the offering is either ignored ... or I've made a 
goose of myself again.

I don't feel like doing a manual install right now to see what goes on, 
but I can't find a RH-ish system that isn't using the value offered by 
my dhcp server. Even on C4.

I do think one shouldn't be asked about timezone info by Anaconda if the 
DHCP server provides it, and I'm sure it still does, but that isn't what 
I had in mind.
