Description Bill Stephens 2000-10-09 10:29:02 EDT
Kickstart under 7.0 no longer correctly uses the ks=nfs paramater.  Under 
6.2, we used the command linux ks=nfs:codeserver:/usr/ksfiles/generic.ks.  
Under 7.0 we use the same command but the install bombs out with "unknown 
install method: nfs://mnt/source/."  The error session repeatedly 
displays "<4>neighbour table overflow".  Going back to RH6.2 boot 
diskettes allows us to work around this issue.

What type of ethernet card are you using?

Looks like the problem may have been network related.  After moving the server 
to another segment, I'm able to successfully complete the install.
