Hi,

I've been fighting two weeks now trying to set up a
provisioning concept based on systemimager with out
success. (About to give up..) The problem is only when
the client have software mirrored disks. (In production
systems mirrored disks is a big +..) I installed the
systemimager server with the noarch RPMs could this be
the problem? Is it recommended to build the RPMs from
the source code? I'm using RHEL 3.0 on both the server
and client side and system imager 3.2.3-1.

Here is the output from the client trying to boot the
newly recieved image from the server.
