Hi Pierre,

yeah i used Kickstart only for some RedHat installation for few months ago without any problems. I found now an information, that the tool ksvalidator is "only" in RedHat5, pity! Nice tool.

Maybe somebody know identic tools like ksvalidator, otherwise i dont really know where is the failure.

best regards
