    Kickstart installation

    Hi all
    To start with i'm useing Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop Edition
    I need some help sorting out how to make unattended installation properly with kickstart
    I got the kickstart file like it should (i think), I used the system-config-kickstart package to create it

    The problem is that my installer ignores the kickstart file
    when the installer-boot starts I hit F6 to get the command line and type:
    ks=cdrom:/ks/ks.cfg file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=/casper/initrd.gz quiet –
    or
    ks=http://10.0.0.169/ubuntu/ks.cfg file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=/casper/initrd.gz quiet –

    non of them works, it just starts the live CD

    I would love some help with this matter, how to write the boot commands or if it’s something else I may have done wrong.

    *edit* some typos

    Regards
    Mikael

    reading the help file its says:
    After saving the file, create a boot diskette from boot.img for CD-ROM installations or bootnet.img for network installations. Copy the kickstart file (ks.cfg) on the boot diskette. Boot from the diskette and type linux ks=floppy to start the kickstart installation.

    You can't use the Desktop Edition to kickstart you need to use the alternate image.

    Use the following for guidance:
