How to stop Kickstart prompting for firewall config

I'd like to have Kickstart go completely unattended. i.e., put the CD in,
reboot and 10 minutes later, I've got a new machine.
In Fisher, anaconda prompts for the Firewall configuration that I want. I
would like to be able to enter something in the kickstart config file to
preanswer that question. Anyone know what that is, or if that is supported
Actually, while I'm at it, on a machine with more than 1 network interface,
it also prompts me for which interface I want to use for the install. I
would like to specify that in the kickstart file as well. The firewall
config is more important however.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a machine from a kickstart floppy/cd with a server set up to
provide the DHCP info and NFS RedHat install.
Actual Results: The anaconda prompt for which firewall configuration I
want appears on the screen. After answering the question, things hum along
Expected Results: I should be able to provide the answer in the kickstart
file and the question should never appear.
You can. :)
firewall [--high | --medium | --disabled] [--trust device (trusted
device)] [--trust (trusted device)] [etc...] [--dhcp] [--ssh]
[--telnet] [--smtp] [--http] [--ftp] [--port] [--port (port number)]
So I don't ask such silly questions in the future - is there newer documentation for kickstart that describes these options?
I would also like to be able to tell kickstart which interface to use on a multi-NIC machine. I also want to make sure I know I've got the RAID options
correct (I keep getting an error about md1 and md3 overlapping physical somethings with md2 (swap)).
Any pointers appreciated! Thanks!
Yes, there are newer docs, but they aren't publicly available yet because they
aren't quite finished. It would be nice to make them available with the beta,
but it's hard to document software that is still in flux.
So nothing available, even unfinished, that I could steal?
What about support for the Logical Volume Manager and/or ReiserFS/ext3?
Okay, I'm asking for a lot now, but I'd LOVE to have this. Thanks, guys!
