Default Clarify the ssh modes for installation on s390x (#621590).

If X11 forwarding is enabled on the ssh client, anaconda will
automatically start up and display via X11 forwarding. Some users are
confused and are expecting VNC -or- they prefer VNC over X11 forwarding
because of their network configuration. Clarify the instructions given
to the user so they know how exactly they should invoke the ssh client
to start installation.
