When doing a kickstart install, using a DHCP/NFS combination
for the install, if the kickstart file specifies network
--bootproto static in the config file, the installer fails
to change the ethernet config from BOOTP/DHCP to static.
Relevant bits of the kickstart file follows:
network --bootproto static --ip 126.96.36.199 --netmask
255.255.255.0 --gateway 188.8.131.52 --nameserver
(all on one line, of course)
After a reboot, you will notice that the
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 files have failed
to change to static from BOOTP/DHCP.
