In the Cobbler kickstart file, I want to use getVar() for templating purpose. Specifically, I want the $root_password_crypted variable be set to $password_crypted variable if present in ksmeta, or $default_password_crypted otherwise. If I drop the following at the beginning of the preseed file, it doesn't seem to work.

set $root_password_crypted = $getVar('$password_crypted', '$default_password_crypted')

What will the correct syntax be?
