Description of problem:
a client install without kickstart over PXE works.
but when I try to install over PXE with Kickstart i have a crash.

the error ist


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1042, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py", line 1207, in set InstallData

When I use the Boot-CD and the same kickstart file it works, too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pxe-kernel from rh CD-ROM

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot PC over PXE
2. load rhws/rhes-kernel for pxe-boot with the option ks=floppy
3. anaconda find the hardware (monitor,video-card,mouse)
4. then "Cracsh"

Can you attach the complete traceback that you received?
Comment 2 Philipp Gantert 2004-07-15 02:13:46 EDT
I solved yesterday evening my problem.
Sorry about that. 
I dowloaded the 2nd Update for Redhat Enterprise WS and RS Disc1. 
There is a newer PXE-Kernel. With these new kernels it works.

best regards and thank you
