Description Scott Lamb 2007-04-18 16:42:10 EDT
Description of problem:

The installation guide has "=" signs after --noipv6 and --noipv4, indicating that they take an option. 
They don't:

        op.add_option("--noipv4", dest="ipv4", action="store_false",
        op.add_option("--noipv6", dest="ipv6", action="store_false",

when booted with "--noipv6=eth0" (my first guess as to what this meant), the installation fails with "--
noipv6 option does not take a value".

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

CentOS 5
kickstart2-options.html, I don't see any version/source information or even a Last-Modified header

Thanks for picking this up and bringing it to our attention. This is now fixed
in cvs and is waiting for the next updated documentation push.
