I've been trying to get a kickstart working with cobbler for a while,

The target system: IBM x3850 M/T 8864

Does this machine have multiple NICs? What happens if you disable all
I had a similar problem, and that was my solution, documented here:
Cobbler makes this pretty easy now -- so you can set it up to PXE off
either interface. You can add multiple NICs to your system records. I
originally added this for creating dual-homed virtual machines, but it
works just as well to help PXE physical boxes.
cobbler system add --name=demobox --mac=AA:BB:CC
cobbler system edit --name=demobox --interface=1 --mac=AA:BB:CC
The first edit applies to interface 0 (the default), and in the second
invocation, we are editing interface 1. There is no actual correlation
between the numbers and the "eth0/eth1" numbers you'll get later ...
it's the MAC that matters.
The only catch here is that if you need to edit them one at a time (this
was done to keep the command line parser simple) and if you add one
too many, you can only delete them through the web interface.
Using multiple interfaces is actually a a lot easier to visualize when
using the WebUI, so I recommend taking a look at that.
