Did you install 5.0 or 5.1 (as I did)?

Thanks for the hint, it seems to work.
Now could someone please explain to me why selecting the driver disk by
hand (having booted with 'linux dd') doesn't work, but creating a
kickstart-config that points to a partition with the driver disk works?

What was the line you used with dd= .. i mean how did you provide the
driverdisk to the installer because you had no physical access ... ?
Because it's a network driver you can not use dd=nfs:// nor ftp nor http
(of course ... ;-) )
That's why you have to point it to a local hdd

Nothing after dd.
dd simply tells the system to ask for a driver disk, which it did.
The LARA remote console allowed me to point it to the correct image by
hand. But then the x86_64 image complained that it couldn't find a
working driver. The i386 image worked (but as I wanted x86_64, that was
of little help).
With the driver disk on a partition and using a kickstart-file, it
worked with x86_64 as well.
