Right after the boot proccess finishes and I get the prompt, the following kernel message appears on screen: eth0: network connection down.
This is what I found in /var/log/messages:

Note that when I manualy started eth0 (/etc/init.d/net.eth0 start) it initialized correctly:
livecd root # /etc/init.d/net.eth0 start
* Starting eth0
* Configuration not set for eth0 - assuming DHCP
* Bringing up eth0
* Running dhcpcd ...
eth0: network connection up using port A
duplex mode: full
irq moderation: disabled
rx-checksum: disabled [ ok ]
* eth0 received address 192.168.1.3/24

Chris: Hm, we're using sk98lin in kconfig. I'd suggest to switch to
CONFIG_SK98LIN=n # > it's deprecated by kernel devs
CONFIG_SKGE=m # \ these two should be able to handle
CONFIG_SKY2=m # / all ethernet cards that are handled by sk98lin
Please test with latest minimal installcd:
Works with InstalCD cc084ffe3d0c5da0c8c6b8360bc7d934
Fixed... sorry about the bug spam...
