Modified my kickstart file and want to update it on my install CDs

Hello. I have a set of three Redhat7.3 install CDs. The first CD has a kick start file on it. I copied the file to my hard drive and made a slight change to it. I want to change the install CD now, how do i do that?

Put the kickstart file on the floppy and boot from CD-ROM with
boot: linux ks=floppy dd

to load the kickstart configuration from floppy.

Hello and thank you for the comment! I did put it on a floppy, but now I want to put it on the CD to make things simpler.

OK, put it in any place on CD (you need to burn-one) then
boot: linux ks=cdrom:/<path>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Can I just burn all the files from my existing CD #1 to a directory on the hard drive, replace the existing ks.cfg file with my new one and then burn it back to a new CD?

If it's that easy, can you tell me how to burn it on a Linux box? It's probably simple but I'm new to Linux.

Do you have a CD-burner on your linux box?
Besides, you need to have "mkisofs"
ftp://andante.jic.com/pub/mkisofs/

Then as root:
------------------
# cd <the path your put your files from CD>
# mkisofs -b images/i386/boot.img -c boot.catalog \
        -o /tmp/rh73cd1.iso \                <=== modify the name as your wish
        -J -r -T \
        -p RedHat_Linux \
        -P www.redhat.com \
        -A RedHat_Linux_7.3_KS \     <=== modify as your wish
        -V RH73KS \   <=== modify as your wish
        .
------------------
It well create /tmp/rh73cd1.iso then burn ISO into CD.

Hi,

   The easier is that do it on Windows through Nero or Easy CD creator.
