I want to install RedHat via NFS, so I have a line like
nfs --server --dir /auto/REDHAT/RedHat61
in my ks.cfg file.

This already worked fine with 6.1, but the same Kickstart file
doesn't work anymore with the 7.0 Kickstart Disk plus 7.0 Updates Disk.
At the Boot Promt, I enter:
linux updates ks=floppy
Later, anaconda crashes after inserting the Updates Disk, saying:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 121, in ?
  from todo import ToDo
  File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 21, in ?
  from kbd import Keyboard
ImportError: No module named kbd

Without using the Updates Disk, anaconda crashes also, saying:

unknown install method: nfs://mnt/source/.

This is making real trouble, cause we want to install ~200 Machines via
in the next days (University of Paderborn, Computer Science Dept.).

Do you have the problem if you do not use the update disk?
Comment 3 Brock Organ 2000-11-07 09:53:23 EST

I noticed your nfs location appears to be pointing to your 6.1 install source:
ie your kickstart file has:
nfs --server --dir /auto/REDHAT/RedHat61
instead of:
nfs --server --dir /auto/REDHAT/RedHat7

could you possibly be pointing to the 6.1 install source instead of the 7
install source?
