      As far as I remember, it's NOPCMCIA=yes. Anyway, I had a similar
      problem on my I8K. For me, the solution was disabling DHCP. At some
      point during installation RedHat asks how the network (eth0) should
      be configured and started. I had to *DE*select DHCP. Instead I typed
      in an arbitrary TCP/IP adress.
