[et-mgmt-tools] cobbler-koan: installer asks for ip, netmask, gateway, dns

I too have issues automating static network configuration within
anaconda. I'm using a RHEL5 domU kickstart with the following standard
static network assignment stanza:
network --bootproto=static --device=eth0 --ip=<my_ip> --gateway=<my_gw>
--netmask=<my_nm> --hostname=<my_hn> --noipv6 --onboot=yes
I've also set --kopts='noipv6 nodhcp'. While this works fine when doing
a standard (non-virtual) install, I receive the same menu prompt that
Jens encounters. More specifically,
IPV4 -- checked on.
DHCP is checked on.
Manual is checked off
IPV6 -- checked off.
This leads me to believe that there must be additional kernel options
not mentioned in the documentation
Strictly speaking, our question belongs on the kickstart mailing list;
however, this whole process falls within the context of provisioning
virtual systems within cobbler. Thx,
