Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to accomplish a kickastart installation of RHEL5.4. I am loading a driverdisk[megasr] which has been copied to the RHEl5.4 ISO image root directory. I am trying to do this as to run the installation without any additional fdd's.
My isolinux.cfg is as follows :
default linux ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg
kernel vmlinuz append initrd=initrd.img dd=cdrom:/megasr-13.12.1009.2009-1-rhel50-u4-all.img
append initrd=initrd.img text
append ks initrd=initrd.img
My ks.cfg is as follows :
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp
rootpw --iscrypted $1$RByT0rMh$Q7lvC55bQOHunY5B0HR..1
firewall --enabled --port=22:tcp
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5
timezone --utc America/New_York
bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=hda --append="rhgb quiet"
# The following is the partition information you requested
# Note that any partitions you deleted are not expressed
# here so unless you clear all partitions first, this is
# not guaranteed to work
clearpart --linux --drives=hda
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=hda
part pv.6 --size=0 --grow --ondisk=hda
volgroup VolGroup01 --pesize=32768 pv.6
logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=LogVol00 --vgname=VolGroup01 --size=1024 --grow
logvol swap --fstype swap --name=LogVol01 --vgname=VolGroup01 --size=1024 --grow --maxsize=2048
Basically I want the megasr drivers get loaded as installation begins before the default ahci drivers, but currently it is unable to load them as I guess they are not being detected from the argument in isolinux.cfg. Any pointers???
Any help is much appreciated.
