Description of problem:
It would be nice to be able to get the kickstart configuration file using either

Added ftp to cvs.  tftp isn't going to happen due to space constraints.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-24 18:06:07 UTC
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed).  If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
