Description Scott Lamb 2007-04-18 16:46:07 EDT
Description of problem:

The installation guide indicates the proper syntax for zerombr is "zerombr yes", but this is not true:

    def doZeroMbr(self, args):
        if len(args) > 0:
            warnings.warn(_("Ignoring deprecated option on line %s:  The zerombr
 command no longer takes any options.  In future releases, this will result in a
 fatal error from kickstart.  Please modify your kickstart file to remove any op
tions.") % self.lineno, DeprecationWarning)

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

CentOS 5
kickstart2-options.html, no version information available

Thanks for this. I've fixed it in cvs and we're just waiting for the next
updated documentation push to publish it.
