- fix bug 165772 : read-only root filesystem reported as mounted with "rw" option
It appears that the initscripts package of RHEL-4 requires a "READONLY=yes"
option in /etc/sysconfig/init in the client root for rc.sysinit not to attempt
to mount it read-write.
- fix bug 165735 : diskless clients cannot cope with no DNS PTR record for their
IP address
It was possible for multiple clients who were unable to determine their
host name to mount the same snapshot directory - this is now impossible;
If clients are unable to determine their host name and have empty
SNAPSHOT settings, the IP address is used for the snapshot directory.
It is also now possible to set the hostname and domainname without DNS
by the DHCP server supplying the host-name option.
- fix bug 165730: prevent kernel*-2.6.9-12.2.EL getting an Oops when 'host' is run
