Description of problem:
the arguments given in the documentation for the 'device' option are incorrect.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6-Beta/html/Installation_Guide/s1-kickstart2-options.html
2. find the 'device' section
3. enter into your kickstart file 'device scsi cciss' (for example)

Comment 3 Ruediger Landmann 2010-08-08 16:00:08 EDT
Thanks for the catch pob -- only the module name is expected now; <type> parameter removed

Fixed in build 0-85
Comment 4 Andrew Ross 2010-08-09 17:58:28 EDT
Checking: Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-Installation_Guide-6-web-en-US-0-85.el5

Example is fine, but explanation of options still includes:

"<type> — Replace with either scsi or eth. "
