Problem

the specified interface eth0 does not exist

Solution

In the general case, specify your network configuration without specifying a specific device:

#network --onboot yes --noipv6 --device=eth0 --bootproto=dhcp
network --onboot yes --noipv6 --bootproto=dhcp

It should pick the first device it finds, which is probably the device you want since it is the device that anaconda picked to get you that far.

For system-specific kickstarts, specifying the device to use is always safest:

network --onboot yes --noipv6 --device=em1 --bootproto=dhcp

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
