Description of problem:
I'm trying to do an NFS install via pxeboot of the i386 version of RHEL4 on a dual opteron Tyan 'Transport GT24 B2891' with dual on board Broadcom BCM5704's - but I get the following message after setting up the NIC:

* result of pumpSetupInterface is SIOCSIFFLAGS: invalid argument

and the install fails to continue ...

However, installing the x86_64 version works fine. 

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. NFS install of RHEL4
2. Select one of the on board NICs to configure
  

Actual Results:  anaconda logs:

* result of pumpSetupInterface is SIOCSIFFLAGS: invalid argument

and the install can't proceed

Expected Results:  NIC should be configured and the installer continues

Additional info:

The x86_64 version of the installer works fine with the exact same hardware

'Fixed' by booting the installer with pci=noacpi or acpi=noirq
