Steps performed:

- Booted with Hardy (8.04) Server CD
- Issued command line "install iscsi=true"
- Followed prompts to Configure iSCSI.
- Entered IP address of iSCSI target

Expected result
- Presentation of targets on given host to select from and continue the install

Actual result
- Red screen: "An installation step failed. ... The failing step is: Configure iSCSI"

Additional info / Troubleshooting steps:
A quick glance at the syslog output on tty4 indicates that the iSCSI subsystem failed to start because the InitiatorName was not set in /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi.  Examination of this file via tty2 verifies this is the case.  Its contents are a bunch of comment lines followed by:


I attempted to set this value with nano and re-perform the Configure
iSCSI step.  This was unsuccessful as my changes to
/etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi were overwritten by d-i.

Hardware issues have been ruled out as I have attempted this on three
different physical machines.
