Description R P Herrold 2003-01-16 14:24:33 EST
Description of problem:

When installed manually, through a networked source for RPM's on the install,
(here by FTP), anaconda does not add a "url" line with the network install
source to: /root/anaconda-ks.cfg

This inforamation is known to anaconda by that time, and really part of the
meta-install process -- it should be included, or included and and 'pounded out'
as is done with the 'clearpart' partitioning stanza.


Add the information -- in my instance, I added:

#Use Web installation
url --url ftp://ftp/pub/install/ftpinstall/

as was specified using redhat-config-kickstart -- I copied this stanza out, and
dropped it into the one produced in a prior network install file produced by

With this in place, I find that the installation can replicate itself hands-off
