upgrades without keyboard, monitor, etc...



Hi--

I'm attempting to use kickstart to upgrade a sizeable Beowulf cluster
from RH6 to RH7. I've tested my ks.cfg, and it works just fine with one
annoying problem: the installer prompts for a return before it begins
installing. There is a screen that says something like "OK, you're ready
to begin upgrading" after it determines which packages it needs and asks
for a return. Because I've got 130 more nodes to upgrade, none of which
have keyboards or monitors, I'd really like to be able to do this
without having to hit return somewhere in the middle. Is there some
option I don't have in my ks.cfg? 

thanks,

j
