I fixed this one.

This bug is fixed now in our internal tree, thanks for your report !
There is only a somewhat complicated way to circumvent this bug:
- proceed through the installation until the point where you are asked
  to ipl (the end of the installation routines).
- remount the DASD containing your root filesystem and chroot to it.
  As an example:
  mount /mnt/dasda1 /mnt/runtime
  chroot /mnt/runtime
- edit /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
  search for this line:
	for i in /lib/modules/ibm-$kernelver/net/*; do
  and change it to
	for i in /lib/modules/ibm/*; do
- save the file and exit from the chroot environment
- umount /mnt/runtime
- ipl
