While you are at it, pls make sure "driverdisk" command in ks.cfg also 
recognize "--biospart" option...

What RedHat weekly build will have this fix? The fix was not included in the 
build of 09/22..
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2006-10-03 15:13:42 EDT
The 10/04 tree should have the fix.  You're looking for a tree with
pykickstart-0.35-1 in it.
