installation of RHEL 4, Update 2 via kickstart
I'm trying to install a Dell PowerEdge 850 with RHEL, Update 2 using kickstart. I have a web server that hosts my RH tree and my kickstart configuration file. My Dell PowerEdge 850 has Dual Intel Pro 1000 and Dual Broadcom 5721J NICs. I boot off my RH boot CD and the system appears to load the drivers for each NIC (it asks which NIC I want to use), but then fails to find my kickstart configuration. During this process, I've tried to ping the client I'm trying to load, but no success. My kickstart installation fails because either the drivers are not getting loaded or the correct drivers are not getting loaded. I have tried disabling the onboard Broadcom and installing from the Intel 1000, but still no success. Only after installing an Intel Pro 100 card am I able to successfully install via kickstart. Has anyone been able to successfully load their systems with either Broadcom or Intel Pro 1000 NICs? Thanks.
