My recollection (from installing 6.0 a couple times) is that even if you
check the aforementioned checkbox during the install, once you're done, the
network is not (properly) configured. I think there's a bug on that in the
"upstream" bugzilla.

I do believe it has been fixed in 6.2, though.

(this is all from memory, I didn't look it up, so YMMV.)
