From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030117

Description of problem:
After a completely fresh install upon the first boot, firstboot fails.  A window
with in the tital pops up and reads:

Traceback (most recent call list):
 File "/usr/share/fistboot/", line 153, in __init__
  vbox, eventbox = module.launch()
 File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/", line 75, in launch
 File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/", line 64, in setUpScreen
  self.dataPage = data_gui.datePage(self.dataBackend)
 File "/usr/share/redhat-config-data/", line 171, in __init__
  ntpServer = socket.gethostbyaddr(ntpServerIP)[0]
TypeError: gethostbyaddr() argument 1 must be string, not None

Since there is a problem with the Data and Time module,
Red Hat Setup Agent will not load this module and
will attempt to run the remaining modules.

Please file a bug [...]

No, nothing wrong with ntp.  It was a bug on my part in redhat-config-date.
