    RE: blacklisting modules in anaconda
    Thanks for the reply. I do use this module after the machine has been kickstarted, what I'm hoping to accomplish is to prevent anaconda from loading that module during installation as it auto-maps the luns so I can't predict the dev node for the usb drive (which I need to specify the ks.cfg location). -Ryan

    blacklisting modules in anaconda
    I'm attempting to blacklist a specific kernel module (lpfc, for an emulex fc hba) and have not found a way to do it. I'm using the vmlinuz and initrd from the rhel5.3 iso (doing a usb install) and have modified the kernel boot parameters to include blacklist=lpfc (found it on a fedora forum) but anaconda is not honoring the parameter. Any ideas? -Ryan
