I am booting CentOS via a USB install. The boot method is simply booting the ISO from GRUB2 installed on the USB Key and then grabbing a Kickstart file from a server in the net. The Kickstart file is supposed to format the first harddrive labled normally /dev/sda. This works when I boot via CD, how ever, with the USB, the USB key always gets the "name" /dev/sda. So the kickstart tried to format the USB! Can I change that name from the kernel command line? instead of editing the the KS file ?
What would be the correct kernel boot paramerter to do this?
Just adding some info: When I boot Debian from an external USB hard-drive, that hard drive is labeled /dev/sdb, and the one inside the laptop is labeled /dev/sda. This really enhances my suspicion I can control the labels, but how ?
I know about udev rules, I don't want to change the udev rules inside the standard CentOS iso ...
