RE: Redhat CD with customized kernel using kickstart



I apologize if I made a hasty statement about the howtos not working.
I was not able to get it to work on RH7.2 and Redhat Advanced Server.
It would be very useful if the howtos mentioned the Redhat bug if people
aleady know about it. Neither the install logs nor the system logs seem 
to suggest anything is wrong, the installer does read the ks file, but 
then does not work as expected.

How are they wrong? It certainly worked for me. Note that there is a bug
in previous versions of RH (before 8.0), where the installer would not
read the kickstart file correctly off of the CD. Is this perhaps what
you are having problems with?
