I forgot to mention that I'm not looking for providing module options to 
anaconda, but a generic way to set any (supported) interface. In this case 
I'm reluctant to reboot and figure out how to do that for a rescue boot.

If this functionality is not available on RHEL3, would it be useful to add 
a feature enhancement request to bugzilla ?
