Description Eugene Kanter 2001-07-06 12:47:16 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
GUI install from CD, all defaults, except for manual
partitioning, workstation install. Desktop system, no PCMCIA.
Ended up with BOOT=no in ifcfg-eth0 config file.
Repeated install twice to make sure.
Changed to BOOT=yes, restarted, pump worked fine.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Perform default GUI workstation install from CD. Choose ALL defaults 
except for manual partitioning. Partition layout is
sda1 /boot 30Meg
sda2 swap 500Meg
sda3 /    about 3.5G

4.3Gig didsk

The check box to start interface on boot is checked
by default.

Probably irrelevant, but Russan language was selected in addition to US 
English in both cases.

Actual Results:  after install eth0 is not up.

Expected Results:  after install eth0 is up.

Additional info: none.

[root@localhost network-scripts]# cat ifcfg-eth0
[root@localhost network-scripts]#

Anaconda apparantly forgets to turn this to on.
