Have you had a look through the docs for Kickstart options under
RHEL4? It's not uncommon for things that used to work one way to be
changed significantly, especially when jumping as far as 7.x to EL4.


30 seconds Googling would've confirmed that badblocks appears to be no
longer supported in EL4.



Reposting your very urgent message which has already been posted is
only going to lead to pissing people off. Though I suppose it
irritated me enough to actually check which is like me telling off a
naughty puppy for misbehaving by giving it a biscuit.
