Question Kickstart Installation of 1.0-4393 drivers

What is the recommend way of installing the new 1.0-4393 driver onto a large number machines, not connected to the Internet and using redhat 2.4.18-5 version.

In the past I have used a specially built RPM todo the install, in my kickstart installation.

Install the distro, set it up, then install the nVidia drivers. Make sure everything works.

Image the disk. dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb will copy the primary master disk's contents to the primary slave. This includes boot sector, partition table, partition layout, etc., so if the disks are different sizes you may want to create the partitions and dd each one manually. Or, for everything but the bootloader, you can just copy the files (this allows you to use different filesystems if you want to).

As long as you're using the same kernel on all of them, you will have no problems using the same kernel module.
