Default Issues with kssendmac and ks= whilst installing via PXELinux

Hi all,

I'm new to the list, so please forgive me if there is a more appropriate place
to ask.

I have a PXELinux configuration that looks as follows:


default linux
prompt 0
timeout 1
label linux
kernel /images/Centos-5.4-x86_64/vmlinuz
ipappend 2
append initrd=/images/Centos-5.4-x86_64/initrd.img ksdevice=bootif
lang= kssendmac text ks=


If I run the following command (which according to Wireshark is sending the
exact same data as Anaconda except for the user agent), the webserver returns
the kickstart file to the terminal:

curl -0 -H "X-RHN-Provisioning-Mac_0: eth0 01:00:16:3e:5d:0f:2f"

However Kickstart simply creates a "400 server error" and despite changing the
webserver logging to Debug mode, I can't seen any errors to help me resolve

Does anyone know how I would start troubleshooting this?
