Rocks Cluster node asking for rolls upon node install

My apologies for posting this in ROCK, but I can's seem to find a "Rocks cluster" section.

I was hoping that someone could possibly help me with a rookie question.

I have Rocks (Rolled tacos) installed with scientific linux. There were no issues with the frontend installation. However, when I went to install the nodes, I encountered something that I have not seen before.

The procedure that let to this issue was:

1) Started insert-ethers on the frontend (tried this with both compute and Ethernet switch as I am using a switch by the way).

2) Powered up the node and inserted the Rocks DVD

3) Made sure that the node was added to the database by insert-ethers and was sent kickstart data (* in inset-ethers as well as visibly watching the node receive the data img files)

4) Then, after data is copied from the frontend, rocks install pops up and asks me to select what rolls I want and to insert said CDs.

Here is the issues. I am accustom to inserting the Kernel/boot DVD in a node and then having the front end handle the rest of the install for that node (sending kickstart file and then doing all of the copying and installing automatically).

I am a rookie at this and have no idea what I should do. Should I select and manually install rolls to the node? If so which ones? Kernel/base/web-server?

I am sure that this is most likely a silly question, but I want to make sure that I am on the right path before I go all willy nilly and start installing rolls that may not be necessary. I am also puzzled as to why the frontend sent the kickstart data and the node copied some img files but then failed to handle the rest of the install automatically.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
