Yup, that Did it! I added the "install" keyword to the info file, and now it is fine. The documentation, however, says that if I use the "autoyast" keyword that the "install" keyword is unnecessary. Oh well, I am just happy it works now. I think "overjoyed" is more the word. Thanks Anas!

Where do you set the installation source? You info file does not have it, do you have it on the command line? I would say yast cant find the installation source and trying DHCP to find it...
This doesn't seem to help. I tried both netsetup=0 and netsetup=-dhcp. Now pops up a window and tells me "your network has already been configured. Do you want to keep this configuration?". Then when I say yes, it tries to DHCP again. :-(

This is something new in 9.1/SLES9. Add netsetup=0 to skip DHCP.
- Advanced Network Setup
The netsetup keyword allows advanced network configurations and enables dialogs to setup the network where required.
the normal network setup questions
just xxx and yyy
default, additionally xxx, but not yyy
xxx could have the following values: dhcp, hostip, gateway, netmask, nameserver. nameserverN asks for N nameservers (max. 4).
For example, the following can be entered on the command line:
No matter what I do to the info file, I still can't get linuxrc to not try to do dhcp on eth0. I look at console number 2 and I see that it has even configured eth0 with the right IP parameters, but it tries to do DHCP anyway. I am trying this with 9.1 now. Same behavior. What gives?
P.S. If you care, my info file looks like this:
insmod: 3c59x netdevice: eth0 DHCP: 0 HostIP: 192.168.1.5 netmask: 255.255.255.0 gateway: 192.168.1.1 server: 192.168.1.18 autoyast: nfs://192.168.1.18/opt/Linux/SUSE-9/profiles/test.xml
