This is not a direct answer to your question, but might be useful
anyhow...

Well, yeah it does, because what your saying is its been considered, a
path has been choosen,  and all little me (6'7" and all) needs to do
is back port to my version of anaconda....sweet.

FC6's anaconda looks for ks.cfg on all cdrom devices until it finds the
file or runs out of devices to try. The same will be true in RHEL5 and
RHEL4.5.
Now how do they handle non-cdrom devices?  do they do the same sort of
search?  Obviously that would only work for physical devices like
disks or floppies.


Thanks for the info...james
