RFE: Prompt for static network information when ks specification incomplete

When there is an incomplete specification of the network information,
anaconda discards it all. But this shouldn't be for the following situation
there is no DHCP server and the computers on the network share some
the netmask, name server and gateway, but not the ip.
In fact, specifying
network --bootproto static --gateway ......
should lead to the informations not provided only being asked in the window
that asks for network information.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.put network --bootproto static --netmask 255.255.255.0 --gateway
126.96.36.199 --nameserver 188.8.131.52
in the ks.cfg, the stuff is ignored
Expected Results: the window asking for network parameters should ask only
the ip address
Request noted, will be considered for future releases.

Deferred to future release.
Fixing bug status- sorry for the email.
I second this (there are several reports requesting the same feature).
Even in Red Hat 9... please when is this going to be fixed, it has been an
issue since Red Hat 6.X!!! There are times it would be nice to automate
installs when DHCP is not available, and a screen asking for only network
configuration would be appropriate during a kickstart.
