RE: using kickstart on factory installed machines



Yes, I do it all the time.  If you use kickstart to install on a machine
that already has something on it, you can do one of two things (not just
two, but I'll explain the most used scenarios).  You can add this to your
ks.cfg:

zerombr yes
clearpart --linux
# list your partitions here
part /boot --size 500
part swap --size 500
part / --size 3000 --grow


This will clear any linux partitions on the disk, and use them for
installing the new system.  Or, if you have some other operating system on
the target computer, use:

clearpart --all
 
to wipe out all existing partitions.  That should do it.
