creating a read/write file system with kickstart


I'm using kickstart to load multiple systems with Redhat Enterprise 4, 2nd edition. I can load all my systems fine, but the problem is, one of my file systems is read-only and I need it to be read-write. Is there a way in kickstart to make this a read-write file system? I can edit /etc/fstab on each machine, but there must be a more efficient way to do it. The line in my kickstart configuration file looks like,

part /usr5 --fstype ext3 --size 1 --grow

Can I add any options to that to make it read-write instead of read-only? Thanks.

i don't understand what the problem is. the kickstart command there is to create and format the filesystem, this has nothign at all to do with wether it's ro or rw yet. that's just an fstab issue later.
