I am very new to linux but slowly getting there.
I work in a testing lab where we are constantly doing NFS installs of RHEL and SLES. Because of this repetition I have been playing with Kickstart files and have a working template that will suite my needs in most cases.
In the case of redhat, we install many different versions from rh3 to 5 and both 32 and 64 bit.
Early on I discovered that you can not just boot to say a 32bit rhu1x32 cd and perform say a 64bit install on a 64bit machine. The boot cd appears to be tied to what version of os you are about to install.
So for example if I boot off of a 32bit version and try to do a 64bit nfs install of even the same build of RH I get an error like:
"The red hat enterprise linux server installation tree in that directory does not seem to match your boot media"
I am trying to find a way to create 1 unified red hat cd with some common kickstart files on it that can be used no matter what os version I need to install. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?
