When i try to do a kickstart install over nfs i use the boot option linux dd
ks=nfs:ws2:/phoebe/ks.cfg i get prompted to install driver disk get told there
is no drivers that match my devices i get asked if i want to manually select a
device continue or try another disk if i try to select manually or another disk
i get returned to the same screen. if i do a normall install with the same
disks and choose a nfs install i can select the driver for my network card which

kickstart install when i tried today to do the same thing it wouldnt load the
driver telling me it wasnt there. so i decided to pop the cdrom in a machine
and make a driver disk from that on a hunch and it seems my local image is
