Re: using driver from drvnet.img


  Is it necessary that you use a floppy?  I just put the CDROM in and type linux ks=nfs:<servername>:/<sharename>/ks.cfg  (assuming you have put the ks.cfg file on the nfs share).  The CDROM has the driver built in.
  However, if you use a floppy then use the bootnet.img which has the 3c509 driver already in it.

I hope this helps.

Well, then perhaps you could tell ME how to use the 3c509 driver in an
NFS install.
It exists in drvnet.img, and I can do a manual NFS install by inserting
the driver diskette when prompted, but I can't make the install work
right unless I put the contents of the driver diskette on a partition on
the system to be installed.
That kind of takes the "kick" out of kickstart, eh?
