Installing LINUX KS from USB

SmilieHello All,

We are trying to install RHEL6 via USB using KICKSTART installation.

We had following configuration:

Below is the entry of isolinux.cfg file :

menu label ^Kickstart Installation:via USB
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg

Below is the entry of ks.cfg file :

lang en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us

after that we had created a ISO for complete installation.
The installation from CDROM is working perfectly fine, but when we are preparing the same ISO on USB then that is not working.

Our requirement is to install a KS LINUX via USB.

ANy help is highly appriciated.

Thanks !!

Have you looked at ISO2USB which is based UNetbootin?

Yup, used that only from preparing USB from ISO.
In the installation KS>cfg was not found.
Since decive path was not identified by mini OS.

Please suggest
