Description david d zuhn 2004-11-22 21:54:41 UTC
Description of problem:

I have a system with several HBAs installed, which show up as sda
through sdc, with my local SCSI drive (which should be the boot disk)
as sde.  

I need to change the driveorder value during the installation (using
the Advanced Boot Loader Options screen).    However, the generated
kickstart file (installed as /root/anaconda-ks.cfg) doesn't reflect
this setting.

This bug is representive of a larger problem -- I have hopes that a
manual installation of a system, using whatever options and choices
made by the user, can be completely recreated by a kickstart file, and
that the generated kickstart file should reflect EVERY choice and
setting made by the user.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 3AS (Update 3)  anaconda 9.1.3-3.RHEL

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. perform an installation, changing the driveorder
2. boot the system, examine /root/anaconda-ks.cfg
Actual results:
no driveorder option

Expected results:
the option value as selected by the user should be present
