Description Justin Sherrill 2007-09-25 15:42:59 EDT
Description of problem:

The kickstart options documentation located here: 


Contain the following issues:

1)  "iscisname"'s purpose and usage is not documented.  Is this a duplicate of
"iscsi" or does it do something different?

2) the "ignoredisk" option is listed twice.  Once as "ignoredisk" and a 2nd time
as "ignore disk"

3) the "graphical" option mistakenly includes some documentation meant for the
option above it ('halt').  

The following:
"The halt option is roughly equivalent to the shutdown -h command.

For other completion methods, refer to the poweroff, reboot, and shutdown
kickstart options. " 

should not be included as documentation for "graphical".
Comment 1 Don Domingo 2007-09-26 19:03:20 EDT

- deleted iscsiname
- removed "ignore disk"

"halt" error already fixed in source. setting this as MODIFIED. since this
document does not go into the distro, no ACKS need to be set.
