Because I'm not able to backport this error and add it to CentOS Plus or anything like that, I have made a RFE at bugzilla.redhat.com for that. Hopefully it's going to be integrated in the next versions.
CentOS-1and1-installations via network would be great and much easier.

Now I use AOOI with CentOS 5.4 and local installation by tweaking to DISTVERSION=5.4 and
downloading the complete DVD into /.

Very cool, I did make a little progress on this. I got as far as creating a CentOS 5.4 LiveCD with a local installer, and the newer anaconda from fedora 11. Testing was successful at 1and1, so now I need to break it down to a basic net-installer, which is a bit more complicated. Anaconda itself can do everything we want from the command line, so either this could be re-spun into a straight net install, or a really small ISO.

Where I left off was the creation of the basic net-install iso and/or a way to update the core CentOS 5.4 CD's with the newer anaconda. If anyone runs across anything on that, it would help to post it here to this thread.

I'm not familiar with that procedures but I have searched a little bit.
What about this options:

#Using revisor from fedora project:
http://revisor.fedoraunity.org/

#tweaking the netinstall iso from centos with your tweaks

#using fedora netinst.iso

#maybe this links help you too:

Latest version of AOOI is up with support for CentOS 5.5 now.

thanks Scott.
Since in CentOS 5.5 are some changes in anaconda implemented, it would be interesting to know if
anaconda supports classless static routes via dhcp by using the dhcp option 121 now.
And if a network installations at 1and1 servers works now?
thanks

Unfortunately no, that was the first thing I tested :P So we're still stuck with using "local" mode on environments like theirs. The good news is that EL6 will support it, as you can see here:


ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/rhel/be ... l6.src.rpm

They're using anaconda 13.x, support for 121 was added into anaconda 12.x
