From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3) Gecko/20050104 Red Hat/1.4.3-3.0.7

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from boot.iso or FC DVD
2.at prompt "linux ks=http://blah/blah"
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...
0 seconds
pump told us: No DHCP reply received

Expected Results:  It should be able to get IP through DHCP and continue the installation.

Additional info:

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.
