Re: grub.conf

Use the open-source ks-postinstall stuff from
http://kickstart-tools.sf.net.  In %post, you call the ks-postinstall
script like this:
/usr/lib/ks-postinstall/postinstall --bootmanager GRUB --desktop KDE

You can pass it various command-line options.  It justs takes those
options and stores them as Key/Value pairs in post.conf.  It then calls
the postinstall script which loops thru all scripts in postinstall.d. 
Those scripts can ". post.conf" and use the values to perform actions. 
We use this to configure monitors, mice, motd, DNS, nscd, nisplus, etc.
all during %post.

I just posted the latest version here:

When you want to add a script, make a new RPM (ks-postinstall-whatever)
which requires ks-postinstall.  It should place one or more scripts in
/usr/lib/ks-postinstall/postinstall.d.  It gets installed during
kickstart and the %post section will call the main postinstall script
(and your scripts as well).
