Re: custom kickstart problem



Mike,

There is no need to give the kickstart file a specific name, as you start
the installation using the name, anything will do.
It looks to me that your slash is out of place ( ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg should be
ks=cdrom:ks.cfg )
keep in mind that on your cdrom is a initrd.img file that contains a
filesystem image.
This image is used to create a ramdisk.  referencing /ks.cfg means that the
file shoud be IN that image file.
( acutally, that is what i do myself)

Any kickstart gurus out there?

I'm building an install CD with a kickstart cfg embedded in the iso (along
with the initrd.img, isolinux.bin, etc).  According to the docs from RH,
the
kickstart file must be named ks.cfg.  So I built the iso, burned it to a
CD,
but when linux boots the box it doesn't see the ks file.  I tried a
multitude of cmd line entries, such ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg, etc, but no go.  What
am I doing wrong?

Mike
