Description James Laska 2008-04-10 10:26:32 EDT
Description of problem:

In testing bug#401531 ... it appears that the new "network --bootproto=query"
syntax is not recognized as valid by pykickstart.

The installation will stop and prompt to reboot in stage#2 as seen below: 

http://redbull.englab.brq.redhat.com/bootproto_error.png

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-11.1.2.111-1 (RHEL5.2-Server-20080409.nightly)

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build iso file with a kickstart on the iso that contains:

network --bootproto=query

2. Boot iso image with: linux ks=cdrom
3. Answer any loader questions to proceed to stage#2
  
Actual results:
pykickstart doesn't like kickstart syntax

Dialog stating ...
option --bootproto: invalid choice: 'query' (choose from 'dhcp', 'bootp', 'static')

Expected results:

pykickstart should be happy

This blocks end-2-end verification of bug#401531.

While this is late in the cycle, if we desire to support the hotfix pushed out
against 5.1 (officially fixed in #401531), I think we'll need to take this in.
