I had an iso image of redhat, into which I placed the kickstart file in the root directory and recreated the iso image. When I tried booting linux from that image (in VMWare) , it started searching for DHCP (boots in network mode).

Can any one tell how to create the iso image with the kickstart file and boot in normal mode?

Your issue could be caused by two things:

  1. Your custom iso image was misconfigured, please check your kickstart options for any errors.
  2. Your VMware settings were misconfigured, are you able to boot vanilla redhat?

Usually when vmware starts searching for DHCP, you have not mounted the ISO properly.
