I have made a boot cdrom that automatically does a kickstart install, using an nfs-accessible kickstart file and with the isos also accessed via nfs. It works great, when it works. It fails every other time. This is what is printed on the screen (I've started at the Redhat nash line, if you need the stuff above that let me know, and pardon any typos):
Redhat nash version 18.104.22.168 starting
Mounted /proc filesystem

mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
Switching to new root
switchroot: mount failed 22
umount /initrd/dev failed: 2
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
It then stops here. It's driving me crazy because if I put the cd back in the computer and hit reset, the install will work. If I then put the cd in again and reset, it'll fail with the same error. (I guess it only works on odd-numbered installation attempts!
I've looked around online but I don't see any help that matches this situation. If I do a standard install, everything works. I am using CentOS 4.1.
