This solution replies to:
- NG Firewall firmware versions 4.2.x
- netfence firmware versions 4.2.x


The installation crashes generating an anaconda dump file.



The problem is caused by the IDA Standard Hardware that is used in the Compaq machine.


1) Create the kick start file for installation with NG Install using CCISS as hard disk-type setting.


2) Edit the generated ks.cfg file with an editor capable of saving UNIX text-format (UltraEdit, Context, VI, ...).

    Delete following rows in the partition part of the file ..

        clearpart --all --drives=cciss/c0d0
        part / --fstype ext3 --size 2000 --ondisk=cciss/c0d0 
        part /boot --fstype ext3 --size 50 --ondisk=cciss/c0d0 
        part /phion0 --fstype ext3 --size 2410 --ondisk=cciss/c0d0 --grow
        part swap --fstype swap --size 128 --ondisk=cciss/c0d0


    .. and replace them with following ones:

        clearpart --all --drives=ida/c0d0
        part / --fstype ext3 --size 2000 --ondisk=ida/c0d0
        part /boot --fstype ext3 --size 50 --ondisk=ida/c0d0
        part /phion0 --fstype ext3 --size 7000 --ondisk=ida/c0d0
        part swap --fstype swap --size 128 --ondisk=ida/c0d0

3) Install the NG Barracuda NG Firewall using the Installation CD and the adapted ks.cfg file.
