Assigning VLAN tag during install prior to kickstart being located



Hi all,

I have been digging through google searches and list archives for both kickstart and anaconda for about 45 minutes now and can't seem to find the answer that I am looking for (hoping for).  I have been using a kickstart file to install many servers in our environment.  The problem that I've run into is when I need to install to a server that is configured with trunk ports.  For now, I've lived with recompiling the iso to include the kickstart file.  But I would prefer to use the default iso and just use `linux ks=http://etc..etc../ks.cfg`.  So my problem now is that, although this works just fine if I have access ports configured, since the `asknetwork` option for anaconda doesn't allow for a VLAN tag to be set.

QUESTIONS:
===========
1) Is there an option that I can pass so that anaconda will support a vlan tag prior to kickstarting?
2) If anaconda doesn't currently support it, is there a feature request for it to be supported in the future?

Thanks
