Description adam 1999-05-11 01:49:12 UTC
When doing a kickstart install, using a DHCP/NFS combination
for the install, if the kickstart file specifies network
--bootproto static in the config file, the installer fails
to change the ethernet config from BOOTP/DHCP to static.

Relevant bits of the kickstart file follows:

network --bootproto static --ip 162.42.150.62 --netmask
255.255.255.0 --gateway 162.42.150.1 --nameserver
162.42.150.33
(all on one line, of course)

After a reboot, you will notice that the
/etc/sysconfig/network and
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 files have failed
to change to static from BOOTP/DHCP.
