Description of problem:
not all network cards will choose the correct speed/duplex combination when
using dhcp for initial boot when ks.cfg later assigns a fixed address.

this might slow down the installation in an environment where 100baseTx-FD is
possible but only 10baseTx-HD is used.

it would be nice if mii-tool could be included into the ramdisk that gets loaded
via the network, since then one could adjust the network speed in the %pre
section and thus reduce installation time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot via vanilla dhcp into kickstart installation

Functionality is already present :-)

Add '--ethtool="speed 100 duplex full"' to the network line of your ks.cfg or
add 'ethtool="speed 100 duplex full"' to your command line on boot and it will
get set.
