My suggestion - by 8MB incrememental steps, but allow the user to type
a number in case someone wants type a specific number.

Sure. A simple pull down menu instead of the ... circle button, where
you have 2 options:
* Physical Media
* Other (ISO) ....

If the user selects Other (ISO) - a sile selection could appear to
select an ISO and then appears. If the user selects "Physical Media" -
the device name appear in the selection.

I think Localtime, should also be a checkbox item (in a seperate
line), and user-net / dummy net should be a radio button selection,
but all of them should be hidden until the user press the "Advanced.."
