IPMI does not start up during kickstart-installation

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am in the process of further automating our system-installation on new servers. Main problem here is that the network-devices do not appear in the order we expect them (i.e. first onboard network card is sometimes eth2, eht3 or even eth4). This depends on the used hardware (in our case which Dell PowerEdge server model is used). I built a table with the mappings from model to network-card. This is important during kickstart-installation of our CentOS 5 servers, since I want to automate the setup of the network-cards (fixed IPs) during kickstart-installation. My idea was to install Dell-OM (HowTos)
