Boot parameters not working



Hi
 
For auto-install of ESX hosts, I use kickstart (through the Ultimate Deployment Appliance UDA). This UDA generates my kickstart file and boot parameters.
 
I've noticed that when using the nic at 1000Mb - Full Duplex, the kickstart scripts stops after "doing kickstart... setting it up". When at cisco switch level I change the port speed to 100Mb - Full Duplex, the script runs fine. Unfortunately, after the install is finished, I realy need that 1000Mb, so I would be nice if I could configure the nic at 100 during install.
 
I tried adding " eth0_ethtool='speed 100 duplex full'  " to the boot parameters line, but this doesn't seem to have any effect.
 
My bootline looks like:
append ip=dhcp ksdevice=eth0 eth0_ethtool='speed 100 duplex full' load_ramdisk=1 initrd=initrd.esx301 network ks=http://172.29.26.249/kickstart/es020.cfg ESXIP=20
 
Any tips?
