The behaviour of the system after reboot is driven by configuration
setup by anaconda. The network setup of anaconda is done in
kickstart's Advanced Options, in the network field. I believe your
are looking for something like --bootproto=static. You should be able
to find more in the anaconda configuration for your operating system.
