I have written a post install configuration script and a kickstart file for RHEL5 installation.
I cannot get the config script to work inside the kickstart installation.

If this is not possible I would like the %post section of the kickstart file at least be able to successfully pull scripts off of a usb flash drive and execute them when the installer finishes.

Ok...I think it would be sufficient if someone could explain the process of having a bash script run at boot time. I'm running RHEL5.
