Description Orion Poplawski 2003-11-11 13:06:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007

Description of problem:
Trying to install on a Dell Inspiron 4150 in a docking station.  The
dock's ethernet port is recognized as eth1.  The installer asks which
interface I wish to use, but regardless of choice trys to obtain a
dhcp address on eth0 only and fails (since it is not plugged in).  

I'm giving install parameters like:

linux ks=nfs:<server>:<dir>

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get machine with two ethernet ports.
2. Only connect eth1
3. Try install with ks=nfs:<server>:<dir>

Actual Results:  Install fails attempting to obtain dhcp address for eth0.

Expected Results:  Install should use eth1.

Sorry, problem was caused by a line in the kickstart config file:

network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp

Removing the "--device eth0" appears to have cleared it up.
