Description of problem: Attempted install of Fedora 12 alpha on 64-bit PowerPC (Apple iMac G5) fails because of an unexpected exception during DHCP negotiation.  The first interface apparently fails because of "unexpected exception" [it works for previously-installed Fedora 10 and for Mac OS X], but there chance to try the second interface is not offered.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-12.15 on  Fedora-12-Alpha-ppc-netinst.iso

How reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download Fedora-12-Alpha-ppc-netinst.iso; burn to CD-RW.
2. Boot, proceed to network setup, accept default DHCP parameters for eth0 (wired ethernet connection)

Actual results: Unexpected exception; cannot proceed.  The chance to try the second interface is not offered.

Expected results: DHCP success; rest of install.

Additional info: Wired ethernet works on this machine using other OSes.  Wireless ethernet (some Broadcom chip) exists, is listed as one of the interface choices.  Installer fails if either interface is tried first.  Installer does not offer the choice to try the other interface.

syslog also shows that DHCP lease was obtained.

I cannot reproduce this on recent rawhide trees.  If the problem is still present, please reopen the bug and post any new debugging information.
