Description Matt Domsch 2001-02-16 16:36:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

In beta3, passing ks=floppy, loader can't find the kickstart file.  This 
happens on both partitioned and unpartitioned LS-120s.  Putting the ks.cfg 
inside the initrd still works.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put a ks.cfg file on an LS-120 (such as from images/boot.img)
2. Boot the CD, eli linux ks=floppy
3. Watch the installer die as it can't find ks.cfg.

Actual Results:  ks.cfg wasn't found and used.

Expected Results:  ks.cfg should have been found.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-23 02:01:51 EST
I'm guessing it's because ide-floppy is a module and it's not
on the boot disk. Oops.

Will be fixed in next kernel build.
