I am trying to write a custom kickstart file for use with cobbler in automating installations across the network. I am having some issues understanding the kickstart file and wondered if anyone knows of a resource that clearly explains the options to use and what they do when creating the file?

Many thanks.


The article in the Fedora wiki is probably one of the largest sources of information on kickstart options.

Update: this wiki has been moved to the pykickstart repo on GitHub.

  • Using that page and the auto-generated kickstart at /root/anaconda-ks.cfg is how I first got started. – Scott Pack Nov 15 '10 at 14:12
