Description of problem:
The ethernet card is "Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5751" on a Dell GX280.
The same problem exists with rhel3 u4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from boot.iso or FC DVD

3.The installation stop at "Configure TCP/IP"
4.Tried choose "Use dynamic IP configuration..." and "OK"
Actual Results: it can't get a IP through DHCP and installation can't continue.
"alt-f3" shows "inserted
waiting for link...
pump told us: No DHCP reply received
Expected Results: It should be able to get IP through DHCP and continue the installation.
dhcp server should be fine. If I finish the installation from DVD, the machine works fine with dhcp. It was just the installation.
See the same problem with rhel3 u4. And also fc3 on a Dell 600M laptop with broadcom gigabit nic.
Does it work if you specify a static IP instead?

Yes I tried to give it a static IP and it can continue
to install from nfs export with no problem.
