Description of problem:
After a clean install from iso CD's, firstboot gave a message of failing to load
date and time module. Error log was as follows:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 156, in __init__
    vbox, pix, title = module.launch()
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/date.py", line 75, in launch
    self.setupScreen()
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/date.py", line 64, in setupScreen
    self.datePage = date_gui.datePage(self.dateBackend)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/date_gui.py", line 171, in __init__
    ntpServer = socket.gethostbyaddr(ntpServerIP)[0]
TypeError: gethostbyaddr() argument 1 must be string, not None

time.
