Re: Kickstart issues

The reason I heard for this is that Kickstart asks to use NFS version 3
even though it (Linux) doesn't support it. The Sun will answer back that
it can do NFS v3 whereas a Linux box will say it can't, subsiquently
kickstart tries to use V3 when it's not supported by the kernel. There's
apparently a hack you can make to the Anaconda code to fix it but it's
not pretty. We had the same issue and ended up putting the files on a
Linux server to get around it. See:
