Post date: October 30, 2008, 12:10 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3089 Comments
Tutorial quote: Kickstart allows you to do automatic Fedora/RedHat/CentOS installations. This is useful and time-saving if you have to deploy tens or hundreds of similar systems (e.g. workstations). Kickstart reads the installation settings from a Kickstart configuration file.

But making backups is the single best way to prevent losing your stuff. So do it!
