Description Jan Iven 2003-01-15 11:00:01 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
On Serverworks OSB4 MB, integrated network interface, anaconda tries to use the
e100 driver. This fails (separate bug), a manually-chosen eepro100 works fine. 
Anaconda does not remember this manual choice, so after the installation the
machine still tries to use e100 for the interface.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install on this machine, using pxeboot/initrd.img through GRUB on local disk
2. watch it try to use e100, fail, pop up dialog asking for new driver
3. select eepro100 driver, continue installation

Actual Results:  $ cat /etc/module.conf
eth0    e100

Expected Results:  $ cat /etc/module.conf
eth0     eepro100
