3.1 Creating a Kickstart File

A kickstart configuration file contains all the information that kickstart requires to perform an automated installation. Every Oracle Linux installation creates a kickstart file, /root/anaconda-ks.cfg. You can use this file to repeat an installation, or you can customize the settings in this file for different system configurations. The file is also useful for troubleshooting a boot-time problem with an installed system. You can use the Kickstart Configurator (system-config-kickstart) to create or modify a kickstart file.
