Lightbulb Creation of files in /etc/sysconfig

Hi everybody,

The no. of system dependent files are stored in /etc/sysconfig.
I want to know when these files are written in Redhat Linux (6.2 onwards to 9) and how relevant the information is, if it is used for writing kickstart config files.

Any answers or links to the relevant information are welcome.

I would believe the majority of those files are created when your installing for the first time as it setups up your network configuration and such. Also I would think its updated using Redhat's GUI tools that associate with that directory to setup any other services, etc.
