RE: %post commands ignored



Re-typing the file in linux was the solution!  Thanks James!
Thanks to Chris Rouch for the reply, also.

I've just completed a ks install with a LONG, LONG list of %post
commands, and only 1 failed because of a typo!  :-(
I worked around the #1 issue by just mounting the /redhat directory in
the ks file and umounting it when done.

NOW...
Could we work on something else?
I'd like to learn how to do a NFS kickstart install.

I have my main server as an NFS server, exporting the /redhat directory.
Problem is, I have a 3c509 nic in the machine to be installed, and I
need to load a driver disk at install.
Per RedHat, I have created the netdrv.img (or whatever it's called)
floppy and copied the files to the root of /usr, and included the
correct line in ks.cfg.  I have as well loaded eth module for the 3c509.
The file below was created by doing a manual NFS install, and inserting
the driver disk when prompted.
I added lines 2, 3, 4, and edited the partitioning, packages, and %post.

The issue here is that the ks install crashes out to the vanilla text
install.
I'm using the bootnet.img, and linux ks=floppy at the prompt.
