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 
RedHat's website.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

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.

Comment 2 Andrew Robinson 2004-09-30 13:25:50 UTC
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.


Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2004-10-19 14:57:06 UTC

This version will be in the U4 update.
