Re: kickstart over FTP fails...



I've seen this - it's usually indicative of some problem in the 
partition section of your kickstart config file.  I've been having 
problems myself in using all of the options redhat says you can use 
in that section.

Try testing with a very generic partition section that fits well 
within the disk size (with space left over) and don't specify 
--fstype, --ondisk, --onpart, or anything else but what's required 
and see if that gets rid of the error- - then you can add that stuff 
in and root out the issue that way.   The two options that caused me 
the most trouble were --ondisk and --asprimary.  If you're using 
those, it's a good place to start.

Good Luck
