Description Paul Rubenis 2000-01-31 12:48:13 EST
I am trying to use the redhat 6.1 kickstart installer.  After fighting with
various errors in the ks.cfs docs, I am able to specify the correct
parameters and the machine queries the dhcp server and retrieves the
correct hostname, etc.  What I am having a problem with is that once the
installer finds the directory to mount, I get the following error in the
alt-F3 console:

mounting xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/usr/local/redhat on /tmp/rhimage as type nfs
creating directory /tmp/rhimage rc = 0
calling nfsmount(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/usr/local/redhat, /tmp/rhimage, nfs,
-10582209791, 0x080e5b00)
method selection completed
writing network information to /tmp/ifcfg-eth0
state saved to /tmp
error in exec of second stage loader :-(
     error: no such file or directory

The /usr/local/redhat directory contains the contents of the RedHat 6.1 cd.
I am of course using the bootnet.img for 6.1

This is a bug in your setup, not in kickstart. Chances are permissions
are wrong in the Red Hat tree.
