I think you need to have the network settings defined - something like:

network --bootproto static

If you don't give it an IP address (with the --ip option), then it will 
prompt for it. This is what I do for NFS installs - as my netmask, 
gateway and nameserver addresses are static, I also give these on the 
network line.
