I've build a local network where using DHCP, kickstart templating and local mirrors I can automate the installation of any RedHat-type operating system. It still requires me to go to the machine (or open a console if its a virtual machine), boot it from a boot media and type in the kickstart initialization commands (
I would like to have the boot media's boot loader add these parameters automatically so I just need to drop the boot media in the drive, power on the machine and get out of there.
I've seen some discussion on how to add a ks.cfg file to the CD image so that Anaconda will pick it up automatically, but I don't want to do that - because I use a kickstart templating server and sometimes tweak my kickstart files, and I don't want to have to recreate the boot media every time I change something in the kickstart template.
How can I change a RHEL boot media to just have a different boot command for the default boot option?
