Kickstart Options

When using kickstart and a network install to do unattended installations of Oracle Linux, you ma need to reference the Kickstart Options.
In my case, when trying to provision Linux servers that boot from SAN, the kickstart file that is automatically created for you after a manual install (/root/anaconda-ks.cfg), did not contain all the options I had given it. Specifically, your boot device must come first in the drive order. Here, sda is the local disk from the Dell PERC controller, sdb is the first LUN on the SAN. The bootloader option must therefore get the right parameter --driveorder=sdb,sda.
