Description of problem:
This was reported for RedHat 9 in bug 110609. I'm using RHEL-3-AS U3
within a VMWare environment. Neither pxeboot nor redhat-config-
netboot saves the location of a specified kickstart file in the
resulting configuration file. The solution given in 110609 was to
upgrade to redhat-config-netboot-0.1.2-2. RHEL-3-AS U3 shipped with
the 0.1.1-19 version and that is the only version I can find on
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run pxeboot with the -K option or run redhat-config-netboot and
fill in the Kickstart file location.
2.Check the resulting configuration file in /tftpboot/install-
linux/pxelinux.cfg. There will be no mention of a kickstart file.
Actual Results: The machine booted across the network will drop into
the interactive installer.
Expected Results: The kickstart file would configure the
installation so that it would be completely automated.
Please try system-config-netboot-0.1.4-1 off of Rawhide.
It has been renamed.
Sorry for the dumb questions, but which version is Rawhide and where
do I find the rpm? My search on rhn only found the 0.1.3-7 version.
This version will be in the U4 update.
