Description Michael J. Carter 1999-10-21 22:24:55 UTC
When attempting a kickstart/DHCP/NFS install, the installer
attempts to mount the DHCP server instead of the machine
defined by the next-server in the dhcpd.conf:

The following dhcpd.conf stanza worked w/ RH6.0, but now
fails with the message "failed to mount
128.165.207.25:/root/kickstart" on the Alt+F3 console:

 group {
        filename "/root/kickstart/wyrd.node";
        next-server 128.165.207.235;

        host forte2 {
                hardware ethernet 00:a0:cc:56:1c:4a;
                fixed-address 128.165.207.226;
        }
    }

128.165.207.25 is the IP address of the dhcpd server.
