Re: FC7 kickstart installation,

Michael,
Thanks,
The thing is that changing a line and pressing "b" did not do the job.
(whereas in ordinary grub I use it all the time and it works)
nor did "enter" and changing the line worked.

It seems to me that this is not an ordinary GRUB; the fact is that in
ordinary grub
you press "E" to edit a menu entry and here you press "TAB" to edit a
menu entry.

You're right.   I should have thought of that.

The menu is using syslinux, not grub.

Per Peter Jones on #fedora-devel, "escape" will get you to the "boot:" prompt.

      Any idea what should I do in order to start a kickstart configuration
      when installing FC7 ?

      I want to add that I am of course aware of other options (like
      booting this machine with FC6/FC5 installation DVD, and then running
      linux ks=http://192.168.0.10/ks.cfg, but I want to be able to do it
      with installation DVD of FC7 (x86_64).

Command line editing should "just work".   Typically I think I type "b"
to boot, but I don't
recall any changes either.

One point though -- you shouldn't use the other distro's install CD/DVD
to install a distro that
is not matched to it.   Since the initrd from the CD is different, it
shouldn't work.

If you get fed up with media, you could set up a local boot server.
Ex:  http://cobbler.et.redhat.com :)



      Any ideas?

      Regards,
      Ian
