Using ks.cfg on the boot floppy



Hi,

I am trying to do a kickstart install using a bootable floppy disk with the
ks.cfg file on it. It is then instructed to look to a FTP server for the
install files.

I have produced a proper boot disk using an up-to-date boot.img file and I
am using a modified SYSLINUX.CFG file to call the ks.cfg file.

My problem is that the ks.cfg file is not bee looked at....the install
process seems to bypass it.

Can anybody see what I am doing wrong? I have listed my SYSLINUX.CFG and
ks.cfg files below.

Thanks,

Ross



I have edited the SYSLINUX.CFG to say:
default ks
prompt 0
label ks
  kernel vmlinuz
  append ks=floppy initrd=initrd.img vga=788

My ks.cfg file is:
