Websphere JSF Problem

Hey folks,
i am a little confused of my Websphere configuration and hope someone can help.

I'm using WAS 7.0 and currently trying to deploy a JSF web application. When i'm using the JSF SUN RI (Websphere default) there is no problem at all. But when I try to change the configuration in the "applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications > application_name > JSP and JSF options" menu to MyFaces I only have a button for "cancel" but not to confirm the change.

After that confusing problem I tried to deploy my application with all required *.jar files in the lib folder of the application. After that I want to change the classloader of my application on the admin consle of websphere and also there the problem occurs, that I cannot choose the classloader that should be used (the dropdown menu for classloader selection is disabled).

So I have two problems:
1. Why are some configurations on the WAS admin console disabled (like choosing the JSF Implementation or selecting the classloader)
2. How can I configure the use of MyFaces instead of SUN-RI (please consider problem #1 ... I already know some help page where the "normal" configuration of JSF Implementation on WAS is described (like WAS Infocenter, MyFaces Homepage etc...))

These two problems seem a little weird and I'm currently stuck.

Thanks in advance for a little hint how to resolve that ;-)
I agree. Here's the link:
