The Red Carpet install hangs and eventually times out during the Nterprise Linux Services install if it's unable to ping redcarpet.novell.com, and red carpet will not be functioning on the server.

Here's my solution. Create a bogus entry in the /etc/hosts file for redcarpet.novell.com (I used our gateway address) and the install will be able to reach the next configuration step, where you enter your admin e-mail address. At that point remove the /etc/hosts entry, so when the https call happens after you enter your admin e-mail address, it will work.
