Does your kernel boot... can you get to a console and explore?
Do you know that there is an iscsi driver in the active kernel you are
installing with. Are you using host names or IP addresses, routers, netmask...
Is the iscsi device a linux system or 'other'.
Can you boot with a CD/DVD with the askmethod flag and make any progress?
Some of the host name, IP address, generic network issues can be tested
and if needed solved with a web server (http) or NFS method. NFS could
'look' a lot like iscsi in terms of path names etc....
