Description Gilboa Davara 2007-02-13 10:08:22 EST
Description of problem:
In previous versions of RH/Fedora it was possible to select which network card
will be used for network installation during the "start networking" phase.
In F7, I'm forced to configure all the network cards. (Either using DHCP or by
assigning a static IP address)

Can you give more details?  You can still select the network interface in stage1
if you are doing a network-based install.  You will then only configure that
interface to fetch the stage2 image.

In stage2, it's different code that exists to configure the NICs for
post-install use.  Are you doing a text mode or graphical mode install (please
say graphical)?

My mistake.
- Stage I.
- Rescue mode.
- VMWare machine booting from an ISO image.

Comment 4 David Cantrell 2007-03-12 16:23:18 EDT
This has been fixed in rawhide in the text mode installer frontend.  In cases
where you only have one NIC, anaconda will ask if you want to configure that NIC
(yes/no).  With more than one NIC, you are presented with a list box and can
configure as many of the found NICs as you want.  Stay at this dialog box as
long as you want.  When you press OK, you advance to the next stage in the
