Kickstart without DHCP

Occasionally, you have to kickstart a host and you don’t have a DHCP server available on the network. To setup the network far enough to load a kickstart remotely (via http) change the boot configuration to:

linux text ip=192.168.1.127 netmask=255.255.255.0 gateway=192.168.1.1 dns=192.168.1.10 ks=http://192.168.1.5/kickstart/template.cfg

Alter the above to suit your environment, keeping in mind that the network specified will only be used long enough to retrieve the kickstart. Your template can redefine the values.
