Re: nfs and net boot problems

If you are being prompted for information, it is not finding your ks.cfg
file.  Look on the Alt-F2 or Alt-F3 windows to see if there are any
additional hints to what is occurring.

Your syslinux.cfg file looks correct to me.

One thing on the ks.cfg file....the one line reads:
 "nfs --server --dir /root/kickstart/RedHat"
 I believe you may be pointing to the wrong directory.  The directory
structure on the RedHat 7.1 CD's looks like this:  redhat-7.1/RedHat/RPMS.
You need to keep that same directory structure when you copy the RPMs off
the CDs.  So, I think your ks.cfg file should point to a directory called
redhat-7.1 not RedHat.  That is the way I have my ks.cfg file set up and it
works fine.

Im trying to boot using the Red Hat net boot diskette (netboot.img) and get
ks.cfg and packages from NFS. Everything works except for one thing: during
boot process it prompts me for:
1. language during installation
2. type of keyboard
3. type of media containing the packages
4. dynamic or static ip
5. NFS server name and Red Hat dir

I don't want any prompts at all of course and i think everything is speced
ks.cfg, syslinux.cfg and dhcpd.conf. Have i forgot some options not make
installation interactive?
Here's (some of) my spec:

lang en_US
langsupport en_US
keyboard se-latin1
nfs --server --dir /root/kickstart/RedHat
network --bootproto dhcp

default ks
prompt 0
label ks
  kernel vmlinuz
  append network text ks=nfs:

server-name "";
group {
     use-host-decl-names on;
     filename "pxelinux.0";
     option dhcp-class-identifier "PXEClient";
     host node1 {
          hardware ethernet 00:C0:26:62:B4:AD;
          option dhcp-class-identifier "PXEClient";
