RE: want to build automated install cds



I tried doing a linux ks=ks.cfg at the boot command line and I got a
message that states:

Error opening kickstart file
(null): Bad address

If I hit ALT+F3, I see the following (last 2 lines):
*load module set done
*getting kickstart file

I have tried the following:

linux ks=ks.cfg
linux ks=/ks.cfg 
linux ks=/root/ks.cfg
linux ks=/tmp/ks.cfg
linux ks=/sys/ks.cfg
linux ks=/cdrom/ks.cfg

and I get the same error message.

So, what is the proper syntax if my ks.cfg file lives in the root of my
boot cd?

thanks,
cj

How are you telling Anaconda where to find the kickstart file? You need
to specify it on the boot commandline, and I don't see that you updated
the isolinux configuration.

You can test what to enter with your existing CD:
linux ks=ks.cfg
and the variations thereon. The file can be in the initrd file, on the
CD outside the initrd (inside your virtual floppy or outside, I think),
on a floppy, hard disk (including, presumably, USB), and then there are
network options.
