dhcp does not work and it could not get an IP address

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F7, both i386 and x86_64
tried FC6 and it worked fine on the same laptop.

Hardware is think t60w, ethernet card is:

3. can't mount nfs, "alt-f3" shows:
   "sending dhcp request through device eth0
    DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 25.255.255.255 port 67 interval 4
    ...
    ...
    DHCPv4 eth0 TIMED OUT
    doing kickstart... setting it up

I am seeing this same behavior.  I have a server someone in the office put
together, starting with a SuperMicro bare-bones system; the NICs are Intel
Corporation 82547GI Gigabit Ethernet Controller.  I am loading a kickstart via
NFS, so it goes something like:

- PXE boot does DHCP request (works)
- PXE loads kernel with command line to fetch kickstart config via NFS
- kernel/initrd load and run, starting anaconda
- anaconda does DHCP request for fetching kickstart (works)
- kickstart just has "network --hostname blah.hiwaay.net"
- anaconda does DHCP request again to use for install - this fails

I have PXE/kickstarted another F7 box, but it has e100 NICs, not e1000.  Is this
an anaconda bug or a kernel bug?

This is probably a dupe of
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=241783
Comment 3 Chris Adams 2007-07-11 10:04:01 EDT
This is a duplicate of 241783.  I grabbed the latest e1000 driver from Intel,
built the module for the F7 i586 kernel, and rebuild the initrd.img with the
updated e1000 module, and now I can kickstart the system.
