Description Armijn Hemel 2006-12-25 13:39:56 EST
Description of problem:

I'm trying to do a net install with today's (december 25) network installation
ISO, but the network is not working. When I try to ask for a lease with DHCP it
says the network is down. The modules seem to be loaded as far as I can see. The
 PC is a HP e-PC 40 which has an onboard e100 install. The machine has the
latest BIOS updates, I also tried to boot with pci=noacpi. The DHCP server on
the network is a Linksys WRT54G and it has other machines connecting to it. The
LED lights on both the network card and router are on.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot
2. select network install
Actual results:

No DHCP lease

Expected results:

Get a DHCP lease.

FYI, I later tried with another distribution and network, with DHCP, worked just
fine. It has to be something in anaconda, where it doesn't bring up the network
interface, before sending out a DHCP request.
