Subject RE: Add zone -- why hypervisor

It's only there to assist with the network configuration.  We need to know the first hypervisors
you are going to add to a brand new zone.  From there, we tailor the rest of the wizard. 
Once the first zone has been created, you can add additional hypervisors separately.  If we
did not do this, you would end up adding a zone, then configuring the physical network outside
of the wizard.

Alena are you saying this is needed for the physical network step?   Or only in the add-cluster
step at the end?

I find the current placement and text quite confusing.  It sounds like I am saying this zone
will be of this hypervisor type, which  I know is not true.
