RE: non interactive install

You have 4 "network" clauses.  The "network" clause is not to configure the
final system, but rather to configure the kickstart environment.  If you
want to configure additional interfaces for the final system, use the %post
section for that.

Subject: non interactive install


I am trying to do a non interactive install of a set of HP BL25p blades 
using kickstart, pxelinux and NFS. The blades have 4 network interfaces 
and every time I boot and run the installer I get a message telling me 
that I have multiple network devices and asking which network interface I 
wish to do the install through. Is there anyway to get kickstart to stop 
asking? I just want it to access the nfs share through eth0 using DHCP. 
When I press OK everything works fine.

I have the following kickstart file
