Which device are you doing your install over?  How do you have
networking set to be configured for post-install?
Comment 4 pascale 2004-02-13 02:40:28 EST
I'm installing from the cd-rom . I've tried several things :
  all network cards with a fixed ip-address and 
  all network cards who get their addresses from the DHCP server
It makes no difference.

I've discovered what caused the problems. I've removed the 2 extra 
network devices (type: NetXtreme BCM5701 gigabit ethernet) and 
started the installation. There installation went well. After the 
installation I put back the 2 network devices and he recognized the
devices. I've configured them and everything looks ok. 

Thank you for your time.

This should be fixed for RHEL4.
