This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

This is a bug in the kickstart file included in VMWare. We can't fix that. (VMWare knows about this, and stated an intent to fix it.)
