Description Erik Karl Sorgatz 2006-03-22 13:59:15 EST
Attempting headless kickstart, using NFS/bootp/dhcp from one HP DL360 server
(with RHEL4 fully installed and configured) to another HP DL360. PXEboot
happens, the NFS mounted isos are accessed as is the ks.cfg;  but Anaconda 
absolutely INSISTS on having a console input from the kickstart target machine
to confirm the selection of eth0 vs eth1 for the install. WHY?! I have nothing
plugged into ther eth1 port, as opposed to the eth0 which is plugged into a
Netgear switch (lines high and active..) This means I have to answer this query
for each and every machine I want to install - which means dragging a KVM crash
cart around the room. <please see attached ks.cfg>

Try adding ksdevice=eth0 to your boot parameters.
