Nope. This issue was worked on for weeks. We could not wait months to give you
additional information. We had to go to REHEL 4 o make the kickstart work. Seems
that Dell went from their 2850 to a 2950 and they changed their Raid
controllers. REHEL 3 was totally incompatible with the new RAID controller on
the Raid 1 mirror of the O/S. It could not even be configured using LVM manually
on the O/S drives. LVM and REHEL 3 with the Raid 1 controllers - completely
incompatible. Thanks for your help - original request was files 2-25 - that is 4
months ago. In the business world we have days not months to address these issues
