Greetings,

While talking to Richard Hughes about a 'preupgrade' use case that requires networking to download stage#2 during the install process, we discussed adding boot options "ksdevice=link ip=dhcp" to get things working with no user prompts for 95% of users. For the other 5% that [do,can] not use DHCP, loader doesn't currently let you go back and choose a different interface or tweak the IP parameters once you boot with "ksdevice=____ and ip=____". Basically, you are presented with a dialog to [Retry] which won't work unless there is a DHCP
server responding.


James, thanks for the patch, I have a Fedora bug for what it does
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=504983)

Well, I was too fast, the bug is concerning something different.
