kickstart auto initialization question


hi,

I've been building a kicksrt file for the university i work at. i've gotten it to work from the cd and over the network, but all require the user to initiate the ks file as a boot parameter. is there a way to add the ks=[path]\ks.cfg line in a file that will automatically execute itself during the install?

thanks

i have done something like this before editing the isolinux.cfg file then recreating the boot disk.


the line in the isolinux.cfg file you want is the line which says

default linux


you can add parameters after that.
if i remember correctly i added something like


default linux ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg

for an auto boot....
