This doesn't work, I think. the 'ksdevice=eth1' or
'ksdevide=link' ways don't work well, because the
kickstart process will write MAC addresses to
ifcfg-eth* files, and that will just leave headaches
to local disk boot.
Another problem with this method is: you have to
predict which eth? the pxe-booted NIC will be detected
as. If there are more than several types of mixed NIC
boxes, then this method becomes too cubersome and not
