Re: kickstart hangs



Actually, this is happening to me, and I am not using NFS.  Mine is a
fully-automated, unattended, http install using a kickstart file. 
>From what I can tell, it might be some sort of DNS or hostname
resolution issue, but I can't figure it out.  This wouldn't include
any problems with Cisco equipment, because this happens even when I'm
running a crossover cable directly between the target server, and the
tftp/http server.
