Shalom,

After a Red Hat Install there is a .cfg in the root directory anaconda-ks.cfg

You can generate a new one with system-config-kickstart

LVM configurations requires some hand editing to actually work.

Re: How to create.cfg file

SEP has it right. KickStart files.

All who use a RH or Fedora system will have one as SEP said, in /root/. As for customized ones, mine are all a bit too customized to publicize..

As to how you use them, at the installer's boot: prompt, you use the 'ks=' option.

Have a read of the Kickstart documentation to see they different ways the file can be passed:
