add pre-installtion task to capture name for Mac
There are scripts to capture the name for a windows machine you are deploying via an onscreen prompt, but for Mac the only option is to have it grab the existing name of the machine. We join our macs to our domain, and we need to make sure the machines follow our internal naming convention especially for new machines. Add a pre-install task that grabs the existing name and prompts the tech to change it if they want like we do for windows!

There already is a task that does this built into the K2000, "Collect Mac OS X Computer Name" and then a midlevel task to apply that name back, "Apply Mac OS X Computer Name"
