Let's insert a small dialog box that directs people back to the website:
"Please refer to www.terrasoftsolutions.com/products/y-hpc/userguide/ or
contact your Terra Soft account manager for support."

Need to look into this --should be simple to transfer one function to more

Just need to be re-linked post window split.

Just rename the button to "Import Image".

a) "Default DHCP Settings" ==> "DHCP Settings"

"Cancel" does not actually reset the settings as the settings appear to take
effect upon entry (not when OK is pressed). Either make it work and call
it "Reset" or remove it (for now).

I like Aaron's suggestion, above.

Probably needs to be re-linked.

Probably needs to be re-linked ... but might require more.

Probably need to be re-linked (see #4 above).

Need to investigate ...

Need to investigate why this occurs.
16) Add a SELECT ALL feature to select all nodes in DETAILS tab.
... once the SELECT MULTIPLE (#2) works.
17) Add the functionality of DELETING a node from the GUI.
Tell the daemon to remove this from the xml.
18) Tool tips
Kai will prepare the text for this after the User Guide is complete. If it
does not get done for the show, not a show-stopper.
