Description Andreas J. Bathe 2001-09-21 14:42:59 EDT
Description of Problem:

when kickstarting I realized that the option --lba32 within the bootloader
section wasn't recognized.
when looking up in the source, I saw that there have to be removed the two
dashes, because when using ----lba32 (with 4 dashes) there is no error
message and kickstart process runs through.

also there is some problem with the --onprimary option...

take care
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2001-09-21 15:36:18 EDT
Boot loader bit fixed... for onprimary, use asprimary instead to force the use
of a primary partition; there is no way to force the allocation of partitions in
a specific order right now, so if you want to have them in a specific order, the
drive needs to be already partitioned (in which case you can use onpart)
