Re: Kickstart problem



Hello all:
                   I followed all of your suggestions and I'm still not able
to download the kickstart file.  Just to let you know, while receiving the
above messages, the keyboard is disabled.  I'm not even able to modify the
the line that shows the the location of the ks.cfg file.  Also, I tried
downloading the file using http.  Using http still produces the error
message "Error downloading kickstart file".  I'm starting to think this is a
network issue.
