RFE: Allow booting from CDROM read KS file from NFS
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:43 EDT
does not work when booting from the CDROM. I had to use the floppy image
"bootnet.img" to get this mode to work. Is this intentional? Why is
this? Surely there is enough room on the CD-ROM to include a "super
kernel" that has bootnet.img's features in it, no?
We currently do not support this mechanism. I will mark this as a future feature
The problem is the CDROM boots from a image which is the same as the boot.img
image in the images/ directory. It does not have network devices so its can't
load the ks file at loader time.
and additionally, brian, since we use the boot.img for booting from both cdrom
and floppy disk, the boot.img cannot exceed the size of a floppy, so we are
unable to expand the boot.img to take advantage of the space on the cd currently
... thanks for your report!
