I made a file partition-ks.cfg and put it in our machine 192.168.5.17 under /var/www/html. When I install a new machine I just do a linux ks=http://192.168.5.17/partition-ks.cfg I have a couple questions though: 1) I have the following in it: clearpart --all part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 part /var --fstype ext3 --size=10000 part / --fstype ext3 --size=10000 part swap --size=2048 part /home --fstype ext3 --size=100 --grow which is OK if I am installing over a previous installation. But for new machines it does not seem to recognize the "clearpart" or it is not enough because I am still prompted whether I want to remove partitions. Should I be using something else? 2) I would like to duplicate the CentOS installation disk and place partition-ks.cfg on the disk too so that during boot it automatically is used (or barring that I can still say ks=<dvd drive>/partition-ks.cfg. Automatically would be better. I tried some ways I thought it said to do that but it did not work. Any tips?
