You may be interested to know that you can not use a non-predefined
static ip address if you use kickstart.  Loader2 has dhcp mandatory is
you use a kickstart file with no ip address given in it.

net.c:781:
    /* If the user provided any of the following boot paramters, skip
     * prompting for network configuration information:
     *     ip=<val> ipv6=<val>
     *     noipv4 noipv6
     *     ip=<val> noipv6
     *     ipv6=<val> noipv4
     * we also skip this form for anyone doing a kickstart install
     */

"This form" is the one to select between dhcp and manual.

Why the hate?

  OG.
