Description Joachim Frieben 2006-04-28 11:12:02 EDT
Description of problem:
A net install of current Fedora Core Develeopment [rawhide] fails.
The DHCP request fails, and the installer does not proceed beyond
the corresponding text window.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from rawhide boot.iso.
2. Choose FTP install.
3. Choose DHCP method.
Actual results:

next window, nothing happens. One can hit the "Ok" button repeatedly

Expected results:
Installer should proceed to downloading the installer image.

Additional info:

network driver [IBM ThinkPad T23 with Intel Pro 100].
Before reinstalling the system from scratch, current rawhide
was installed, and network functionality including DHCP was
I am sure FTP install w/DHCP worked maybe 3 weeks ago, when I
installed my system also over the network.
