Hi John,

Adrian is correct in saying that you need to specify anything in the pre section, because it's then that anything can be set.

If you put something into /tmp in the pre section, then before the pre section ends, copy it to /mnt/sysimage/tmp and then once in the post section, it will be in /tmp and available for you use.
Basically, /tmp from the pre section is no longer available in the post section (but it is available in a post section if you specify --nochroot).
What was in /mnt/sysimage/tmp is now in /tmp in the post section

Hi, Adrian.  I'm not sure what you mean by "it's too late"... it's an
include.  I can't include something in %pre that must be done in %post

And that doesn't explain why %include
/mnt/source/isolinux/setup-questions works, but copying setup-questions
to /tmp/ and then %include /tmp/setup-questions does not, even though
/tmp/setup-questions exists, is readable, and contains the exact same
code that works just fine when included from the DVD.

I have several kickstarts, and chunks of code that are common to all of
them.  I want to have those common chunks in one place, so when I need
to make a change, I make it in one place and the change will
automatically be seen by all kickstarts.  Just in case there's a
question of terminology here.
