Default Centos 5.2 kickstart install from USB Pen failed

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi all,

I usually use DHCP to install CentOS boxes via kickstart. For a first
install, I boot the machine on the CentOS first CD, I type "linux ks" at
the prompt and the rest is automatic. I have already use USB pen to boot
some servers that don't have CD-ROM drive and all went well with the
diskboot.img of CentOS 5.1.

But the diskboot.img of CentOS 5.2 seems to be unable to deal with the
kickstart parameters passed by DHCP. The embedded DHCP client does not
get the "filename" option value and seems to have problems with the DNS
server (even if the "next-server" is correctly resolved). The installer
fails at the moment of getting the kickstart file and asks me to enter a
alternate location. There is a warning about the DNS server on the
console, and it shows that the "filename" is set to "(null)".

All went well with the 5.1 diskboot.img, with the same hardware, same
DHCP configuration, and the same kickstart configuration (but with a 5.1
install tree).

Anyone having the same problem ? Did I miss something ?

Many thanks,


3.14r
