Description brian 1999-10-26 20:36:16 EDT
I have converted my 6.0 ks.cfg file to work with 6.1.  I
have tried to validate all of my script against the 6.1
documentation and it appears to all be valid to me.  But my
problem is that since I have the Intel Tulip 21143-PD
network cards I have to feed kickstart a noprobe to be able
to specify that it should use the de4x5 driver so that I can
install.  Then I upgrade the kernels tulip driver to version
.91 and life is happy.  Well like I said above, the 6.1
kickstart system seems to ignore the noprobe flag and still
loads the tulip driver which doesnt' work.  I can do it by
hand with expert, but I'm not excited about doing 111
machines by hand.  Here is my ks.cfg file:

This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.

In the next release, you should specify "noprobe" as a kernel option to get
this behavior.
