RE: Kickstart from eth1 (eth0 socket bad)



There are 2 places to you need to specify eth0/1:

In the kernel line:
linux initrd=initrd.img ks=http://some.server/ks.cfg ip=1.2.3.4
netmask=255.255.255.0
gateway=1.2.3.4 dns=1.2.3.4 ksdevice=eth0

AND in the ks.cfg file:
network --bootproto=static --ip=1.2.3.4 --netmask=255.255.255.0
--gateway=1.2.3.4 --nameserver=1.2.3.4 --device=eth0


If you're booting from CDROM or Floppy, edit isolinux.cfg or syslinux.cfg.
If you're booting from network, you'll need to edit pxelinix.cfg

I believe your confusion is because you're editing the ks.cfg file only.
But without using the proper interface, your computer cannot even reach the
ks.cfg file in the first place.
