Installing with Kickstart
After you create your “ks.cfg" file, you have to make it available on a network server, USB drive or the boot media. Then you simply insert the Linux installer disc into a computer and boot the computer, type “linux ks=path" at the boot prompt, and press “Enter" replacing “path" with the appropriate path to the ks.cfg file in one of the following formats:
NFS Server: “linux ks=nfs:[server]:/[path]"
Example: “linux ks=nfs:server.website.com:/directory/ks.cfg"
HTTP Server: “linux ks=http://[server]/[path]"
Example: “linux ks=http://server.website.com/directory/ks.cfg"
USB Drive, Floppy Disc or Other Disc Drive: “linux ks=hd:[device]:/[file]"
Example: “linux ks=hd:sda3:/mydir/ks.cfg" where “sda3" specifies the third partition on on the first disc drive. If you wanted the first partition on the third disc drive, you’d type “sdc1" instead.
Note: The drive must be formatted with either the FAT or EXT2 file systems.
Boot Disc: “linux ks=cdrom:/[path]"
Example: “linux ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg"
Note: You must create a modified Linux installer boot disc and add your own kickstart file to it.
