Many thanks to all, with your answers they are successful to improve my
procedures of pxe setup.

But my question (formulated badly, I'm sorry for my bad English) it was

I would want make the disk partitions, and mkfs, from a shell command
line procedure.

Now I manually use this procedure on my pc whit fc4:

# fdisk -l /dev/hda

add a new disk on hdb and manually, whit fdisk /dev/hdb, I recreate some
partition, then lvm, and mkfs on the new hdb disk.

Therefore the question is: it is possible to create a python procedure
(or someone has already create it) that uses as
includes /usr/lib/anaconda files, and that reading from a KS syntax file
(that I manually compile, like my first example), write to the new disc
the partitions and recreate the filesystem, like the setup do ??

I hope to have explained well my question ... or this is a question for
anaconda ML?

Many thanks to all!!
