Description Pekka Savola 2002-04-10 06:59:48 EDT
%include cannot be in kickstart scenarios where ks.cfg is just copied on a
floppy (or probably CDROM somewhere); it seems like including is only possible
from "root" images.

This is usable in scenarios where you do like 'linux ks=floppy".

Sure you can, it just requires a little more work.  Something like the following
should let you use '%include /tmp/floppy/foo'.  Rather than add more to already
frightening code, I'd rather keep it understandable and have people take
advantage of it better.  It will just take a little bit of time to discover the
complete range of what it lets you do.

mkdir /tmp/floppy
mknod /tmp/fd0
mount /tmp/fd0 /tmp/floppy
