      Do yo have any basis for your correction? Here is a sample ks.cfg script & you will notice that the only specific requirements are root password & install location. Network can be DHCP:

      #
      # Sample scripted installation file
      #
      # Accept the VMware End User License Agreement
      vmaccepteula
      # Set the root password for the DCUI and Tech Support Mode
      rootpw mypassword
      # Install on the first local disk available on machine
      install –firstdisk –overwritevmfs
      # Set the network to DHCP on the first network adapter
      network –bootproto=dhcp –device=vmnic0
      # A sample post-install script
      %post –interpreter=python –ignorefailure=true
      import time
      stampFile = open(‘/finished.stamp’, mode=’w’)
      stampFile.write( time.asctime() )
