RE: 2 ks.cfg files in syslinux.cfg

The way that I do it is to get the ks.cfg file via NFS.  In syslinux.cfg on
the bootnet floppy disk, I put:

label Set1
  kernel vmlinuz
  append ks=nfs:nfs.server.com:/path/to/kickstart/ks1.cfg initrd=initrd.img
label Set2
  kernel vmlinuz
  append ks=nfs:nfs.server.com:/path/to/kickstart/ks2.cfg initrd=initrd.img

I use NFS for the installation as well, so I have the kickstart and redhat
cd directories on the same machine.

You can't do quite what you want. You can unroll the initrd on the boot
disk, copy your files onto that filesystem, put the new initrd there, and
then use ks=file:/ks1.cfg or file:/ks2.cfg.
