Do the systems have multiple nics connected to the same network? Does
the kickstart activate more than one? Unless there are multiple network
entries in the kickstart it should only use 1 nic.

It's pretty hard to tell without logs though. Grab them from /tmp/*log
after an installation has finished and attach them to a bug (as
individual text/plain attachments) at
