Description of problem:
Ethernet network does not configure with given IP, netmask, gateway, and nameservers. The Network CAN be correctly configured after installation with full OS.
I have tried configuring with kernel parameters, a floppy kickstart file, and from the Anaconda GUI. If static parameters are supplied, then none of them set up Ethernet. The ethernet indicator LEDs indicate there is no network activity.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from installation media
2. Specify IP, netmask, gateway, and nameservers
3. Attempt to continue installation.
Network failed to configure
Tested system is a VMWare Workstation 6.5, with bridged networking.
You can run the installation with the following boot parameter in addition to whatever other boot parameters you use to start the installer:
Run the installer as you have that led to this bug. After installation, collect the /root/install.log and /root/install.log.syslog files and attach them to this bug report.

Anaconda log, Obtailed with loglevel=debug as kernel parameter.
Not as verbose as I would expect....

Anaconda syslog, Obtained with loglevel=debug as kernel parameter.

Generated Kickstart file
All three were generated from the same install attempt. After install, the bridged network did work, but not during install.
I'm sorry, I meant to ask for the /var/log/anaconda* files off the installed system. Still perform the installation using loglevel=debug
My mistake, sorry about that.

The files were still there.

I don't see anything obvious in the logs. Since this is VMware, the only thing I can do is ask you to try the latest development snapshot of Fedora and see if it fixes the problem. If it does, then the problem won't be present in F-12. I don't have VMware and cannot easily debug problems with it.
The latest development trees can be found here:
Where $ARCH would be i386 or x86_64. The /os subdirectory will have an images subdirectory containing boot images. The boot.iso file would probably be easiest for you in VMware.
NOTE: If there is not an 'images' subdirectory, it means the development tree build did not complete from the previous night. This happens sometimes, so you just have to check the next day and see if one is there.
Since this is vmware, there's not really anything else I can do.
