Hey, someone just told me yesterday that I can give my machine an 
initial IP address, gateway, dns server, and netmask via command line 
like this:

linux ks=http://www.mydomain.com/kick.ks ip= 
netmask= gateway= dns=

Is this true?  Is the syntax wrong or right?

If so, and I call my kick.ks file and it has

it'll pull the files from the CD but won't launch the CD install right?  
I just want to initiate a kickstart where the systems get their drive 
partitioning info, IP addressing & hostname attributes, and minimal 
install packages, from the kickstart file.

Is it really true that you can use the above command line to give an 
address for the machine to use in seeking out a kickstart file on the 
network?  I tried it a few times last night an looked for a very long 
time for examples of this syntax, and found none.
