29.2. Editing the GRUB Configuration

The GRUB boot loader uses the configuration file /boot/grub/grub.conf. To configure GRUB to boot from the new files, add a boot stanza to /boot/grub/grub.confthat refers to them.
A minimal boot stanza looks like the following listing:
title Installation
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-install
        initrd /initrd.img-install
You may wish to add options to the end of the kernel line of the boot stanza. These options set preliminary options in Anaconda which the user normally sets interactively. For a list of available installer boot options, refer to Chapter 28, Boot Options.
The following options are generally useful for medialess installations:
  • ip=
  • repo=
  • lang=
  • keymap=
  • ksdevice= (if installation requires an interface other than eth0)
  • vnc and vncpassword= for a remote installation
When you are finished, change the default option in /boot/grub/grub.conf to point to the new first stanza you added:
default 0
