Can you try installing using the latest rawhide?

Comment 3 ericm24x7 2007-04-13 19:49:50 UTC
OK, I will do so as soon as my mirror catch up with the latest update changes
(probably a couple of days). I don't see any changes at the moment.

Comment 4 ericm24x7 2007-04-14 19:37:25 UTC
I just reviewed the serial outputs again, and notice that it was probing at the
wrong interface card (eth0) instead of the desired eth2, which I set correctly
on the kernel commandline (grub), but set incorrectly set on kickstart file. 

Here is the mistaken line on my kickstart:
   network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp --hostname fiji3
It should have been:
   network --device eth2 --bootprooto dhcp --hostname fiji3

OK, Sorry, this is just a USER ERROR. I'm closing this bug now.
