Usage Notes for RDSTUFF
RDSTUFF was written to deposit a ks.cfg file into the initrd.img inside a bootnet.img. The reason for this is that our build mechanism is based on kickstart. When kickstarting Compaq servers, using RILO cards - you can use the Virtual Floppy feature of the RILO. The RILO Virtual Floppy doesn't appear to the o/s as /dev/fdo so the ks.cfg file is hard to find. Putting the ks.cfg file into the ram disk image (initrd.img) allows the ks.cfg to appear to the o/s as /ks.cfg.
