Thanks for the info.
I'm most interested in %packages. The manual talks about package
selection. In order to reduce the install size, I select no additional
packages. I just want a base (40-50M) system. My current installed
system turns out to be huge (700M+).
I read in the manual, it says "The Package Selection window allows you
to choose which package groups to install." I understand this to mean
that choosing a package installs that package, in addition to the base
system. Have I misread?
By selecting no packages, is kickstart installing all packages by
If I select "@ base", will this only install the base and skip the rest?
My goal is a very small, very quick network install.
Thanks to everyone for their help and patience. Extra thanks to Derek
for sending me an excellent ks.cfg example.
