screenshot of dhcp failure

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/535.1 (KHTML,
like Gecko) Chrome/14.0.835.186 Safari/535.1

Server model: Dell Poweredge R710
OS: SLES 11 SP 2 beta 6

The installation cannot start through PXE, because the installer cannot
configure the ethernet interface through DHCP. I have tried this on three
other server models, and they do not experience this problem. Installation
through DVD also works.

I noticed that on PowerEdge R710s, it names the ethernet interfaces like em1,
em2, etc, instead of the old eth0, eth1. This is probably due to the kernel
bump. I'm suspecting that this could have to do with the DHCP / PXE problem
I'm seeing, because on the other three servers, they are named eth0, eth1, etc.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up PXE server with SLES 11 SP 2 beta 6
2. Start installation from PowerEdge R710
3.
Actual Results:
The kernel and initrd load at the start of the installation, but when the
installer attempts to configure the ethernet interface through DHCP, it fails
immediately, and then says the repository cannot be found. This problem did
not exist with this host on beta 4, but does on 5 and 6

Expected Results:
It should configure the interface and allow the installation to start.
