RE: insmod (path is null)



This is a copy of my syslinux.cfg in which I don't have to type anything,
and my ks.cfg follows that. Obviously the xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx would be an IP,
but I don't think our info security people would like me to post that
information, even with a firewall. :)

Thank you Scott, putting the module in /tmp of the ram disk worked, the
module can be loaded.  Though I was still prompted to select this from a
list.  Anyone know how to make the installer automatically load the
right module?   I'm trying for a completely automatic installation, no
humans, no keyboard, this is a must!
