Description of problem:
disklessrc fails in sub findhardware when multiple (2 in my case)
pci network cards are installed. the problem is the line IFS="\n".
this does not work as expected. changing the line to IFS=$'\n' fixed it for me.

Thanks for pointing this out - none of my test boot clients had 
multiple interfaces :( 
This has now been fixed with system-config-netboot-0.1.17-1EL3 ,
soon to be in fc3-updates, and which meanwhile can be downloaded from:
Please try it out and let me know of any issues - thanks.
