Hello, we have this situation that we have a specific automated USB key installation of Centos 5.2 that should work with a special server-appliance that we ship to customers.
However, the old server hardware model is no longer available so it had to be replaced by a more recent model.
The problem is that the new NIC hardware is not available in the Centos 5.2 installation and hence we needed to install a new source driver and compile it for the running kernel creating a new .RPM driver.
This added NIC driver support but it is still a problem since we have a kickstart 5.2 USB key installation that is supposed to take care of everything and so post-install driver addition is not acceptable.
The question is whether the original Centos 5.2 installation can be slipstreamed to include this new driver as well so the NIC will be automatically detected at installation setup?
