The whole thing doesn't work.
The network card is an onboard Intel eepro100 which isn't correctly recognized by grub's eepro100 driver. SuSE 8.2's driver recognizes the card.
Image from http://www.rom-o-matic.com will recognize the card but uses DHCP which I can't use because I MUST ENTER my own IP address and hostname at bootprompt.
So I'm back at the beginning: How can I tell autoyast to load module eepro100 from modules3 disk?
If I enter this at the bootprompt it will be ignored.
