What is your IP address/netmask? What's the output of 'netstat -rn'?
Not enough information to be sure, but my first guess (based on the
source code for sysinstall) is that you're specifying an IP for the
gateway that is not reachable based on the IP/netmask for the interface.
For example: If your IP/netmask is 172.16.0.1/255.255.255.0, then the
system has no way to reach 10.0.0.9.
If that's not the problem, the I suggest collecting some more detailed
information and posting again.
