Is it possible to create one ISO with one kickstart file that will work correctly when written to CD/DVD and as a USB?
As far as I can tell I need two separate versions as modifications are needed in isolinux.cfg (ks=) and ks.cfg (because I access the install media in %post)
It seems odd isolinux.cfg doesn’t default to the root of the installation media and that kickstart doesn’t have a global define for the source media device.
Or is there an alternative to kickstart?
Pull the kickstart file off a web server on your local network.
(It’s highly unlikely that you don’t have a web server on your local network…)
If you have to install lots of systems, consider using Spacewalk.
