This is ridiculous;
OK so I decided to setup http based installations out of desperation,
I copied the install dir fc1 to my http folder .
I forgot to edit the ks.cfg (kickstart file) which is set to nfs, the line is:
nfs --server=192.168.2.1 --dir=/fc1
Booting from cdrom I use the option:
and then it mounts my nfs share /fc1 and the install rocks on.
So I figured that nfs has mysteriously decided to work so I try
and it fails to mount the share.
So I know it is a problem between named and dhcp but what is the problem.
Please can someone give me a clue
