DHCP and kickstart



Hi.

I've got problem with RedHat 9 kickstart installation.

I'm using CDROM-based installation and trying to use network services in my %post script. The kickstart config file includes following line:
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp


When setup starts to execute %post section the network is unreachable because all network interfaces are down. Requesting the IP address from DHCP server fails. When I executed dhclient manually in time of installation after %post failed it complained about missing CONFIG_PACKET and CONFIG_FILTER in kernel configuration.

When I reconfigure my kickstart file to use static IP-address, everyhing works fine.

Can anyone explain me how to use network services in %post script without using network-based installation?
