It looks like someone already filed this one, which covers my situation
exactly:

- Bug #180821
- <https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=180821>

"During first phase of installation setup assigned properly forcedeth
module to PHY controller ICS1883AF so I could install software. During
second step (post first reboot) installer assigned skge module to
nvidia PHY controller ICS1883AF. On the first occasion during second
step network controller configuration, I dod not check settings
(because these were correct for the first step of installation and
network worked). After second reboot, network failed, home partition
was not loaded (missing hostname). I had run Yast from command line and
corrected module selection on PHY controller ICS1883AF from skge to
forcedeth, mounted home partition and reboot system. This time all
worked."


This is pretty much what happened to me with my Asus P5B. Instead of
using YaST to fix the problem, I edited a system configuration file
in /etc/sysconfig/hardware/.
