Kickstart ?


In the Official RedHat Linux Administrator's guided on page 16 it describes how to create a ks.cfg file using a network installation.
The problem is that I do not have a DHCP server nor a BOOTP server so I need to enter all the required information on one line. In their example the use the "\" to indicate that all one line , however, the following paragraph quotes "All static networking configuration information must be specified on one line; you cannot wrap lines using a backslash, for example"

So I have tried the the KS.cfg file without the backslash and with the backslash because it is impossible to get all the required information on 1 line. Problem is neither work. However if I let it time out 3 times it does bring me to the network config and allow me to place all the information in and then the ks.cfg file works like a charm. I don't want to have to wait until it times out three times. What can I do? Does anyone have an example of a workign ks.cfg that has the network set with --bootprot=static and all the necessary info on 1 line?

FYI I am using RH Enterprise Server AS

Thanks For any response.
