Description ericm24x7 2008-03-26 18:47:33 UTC
Description of problem:
When performing PXE install through the second (2nd) interface (eth1) instead of
(eth0), the install fails because it always probed for DHCP and download
kickstart from the first interface (eth0) regardless of whether the kernel
command line and/or kickstart file specified the 2nd interface(eth1).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use two interface cards and PXE install through the 2nd interface (eth1)
assigned by the boot program. This is important, install will NOT fail if
installed through the first interface eth0 (the algorithm always search for DHCP
starting from eth0 then eth1... etc.

2. Here is an example for KERNEL COMMAND LINE (located in pxelinux.cfg/default):
        kernel /fed/dev/x86_64/os/isolinux/vmlinuz
        append initrd=/fed/dev/x86_64/os/isolinux/initrd.img ksdevice=eth1 \   

   And the KICKSTAET file (/a/ks/f4d3)
        url --url
        network --device eth1 --bootproto dhcp --hostname fiji3

Actual results:
The program stopped and failed when obtaining IP from DHCP through eth0 instead
of eth1

Expected results:
The program would continue if it is able to obtain an IP from DHCP through eth1.
