Description of problem:

There is no documentation that describes the format for entereing the 
installtion number into the kickstart file.  If the installtion number cannot 
be entered into the kickstart file, an automated installtion is not possible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

During an automated kickstart installation, the installer asks for the
instalation number. 

Expected results:

Should be able to add the installation number to the kickstart file,so the user
does not have to enter the number manually.

Any pne going to look at this?

Comment 2 Tom Kennedy 2007-03-06 21:16:45 UTC
I still have not seen an answer for this one.  This is the last item
I need answered to get Redhat 5 to perfom a complete auto installation.

Any progress on this one?

Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2007-03-07 11:25:53 UTC
This was filed against the incorrect component.  Reassigning.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-03-07 15:29:31 UTC
The key command is described in the anaconda documentation as shipped in RHEL5.
 This isn't all that helpful, though it's the same as the source for all the
other kickstart documentation.  system-config-kickstart will prompt for this in
an update release, as it was not fixed until after the freeze for RHEL5.  Is
there something else you were looking for?
