Description Guil Barros 2006-08-25 10:41:54 EDT
Description of problem:
the mkdiskless script tells users to set $FORCE_DISKLESS if they will be
re-running the script on a previously mkdiskless'd root directory but the script
itself is looking for $FORCE_MKDISKLESS (note MK).

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

How reproducible:
read the source of /usr/share/system-config-netboot/diskless/mkdiskless

Actual results:
script does not do intended action and throws no warnings

Expected results:
script should modify diskless root
