 I've only been half reading this thread, so feel free to ignore this
"interruption" ...

Just plug one and only one NIC into the switch
Add "ksdevice=link" to your boot-up line (e.g. syslinux.cfg??).

Configure network (if you must) or just let DHCP take over.

Kickstart away ....
(works for me on boxes where during anaconda installation the NICs are
labeled one way,
but CentOS running system does another).

Just a thought ...
