Re: kickstart to prompt for network

Thought so.  This is a bug in anaconda (in my mind anyhow, Red Hat won't 
acknowledge this).  Basically during a CD kickstart, anaconda will never 
prompt you for network information, no matter what combination of 
networking information you leave in or out in the ks file.  There is a 
fix, however, which I figured out while stumbling through the anaconda 
code.  Here it is (I'm doing this from memory but I think that it's 
right):

take the stage2.img from the CD, copy it /tmp or whatever.
mkdir /mnt/img
mkdir /tmp/new_img
mount -o loop /tmp/stag2.img /mnt/img
rsync -avv /mnt/img/* /tmp/img/

now you want to look at the /tmp/img/usr/lib/kistart.py

and comment out the below line:

dispatch.skipStep("network")

This will force kickstart to prompt for networking.

then create your new stage2.img :

mkcramfs /tmp/new_img

and copy it back to your temporary CD making directory, re-create your 
ISO, burn it and you're good to go.
