Probably we won't be able to either unless you elaborate on how
you begin the installation:)

Given you posted dhcpd config, I am willing to guess you are
doing|assuming something wrong...

starting it gives this error after detecting all the hardware and trying for the kickstart file

The ks syntax on append line doesn't look right - I think you should
just use "ks=ftp://192.168.0.1/pub/ks.cfg"

kickstart installation error
 
Hi List,


I am trying to install rhel5 using kickstart,
I have created a kickstart file and provided it using ftp, installation is
happening but once the system boots it is booting into init level 1
and when I tried to switch to init 5 it is giving error "x is respawing high
disabled for 5 minutes"
Can I get the solution for this????



Thanks

Kavya

Does your machine meet the requirements for a graphical install? Change
the install method in your kickstart to cmdline to get verbose output in
text mode.

It does supports, from CD-Rom I will install in graphical mode itself.

Did you change the install type to cmdline or text? What happened then?

kickstart installation error
 
So I'm not sure I understand. You say installation is happening? Does that mean you successfully install RHEL5 and then can't boot into runlevel 5?
