Which RHEL 3 variant are you using (AS, ES, WS)?

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2004-01-07 12:51:48 EST
"Server Configuration Tools" and "Network Servers" are valid package
groups for AS and ES although they don't exist for WS.  We left those
groups in redhat-config-kickstart in order to make it possible to
create a kickstart file for all RHEL variants.  

In other words, it should be possible to use redhat-config-kickstart
on a WS machine to make a kickstart file for an AS installation.  

However, I see your point in that there is no way for the user to tell
that some groups may not exist for WS systems.  

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2004-03-11 12:06:28 EST
This will be fixed in system-config-kickstart-2.5.8-1 to make it more
clear which package groups are avilable on the different variants.
