Environment

Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 6.5 - ZDM6.5 Imaging
Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 6.5 - ZDM6.5 PreBoot Services (PXE)
Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 7 - ZDM7 Imaging
Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 7 - ZDM7 PreBoot Services (PXE)

Situation

The Linux Loader is not passing parameters correctly from the CMD files to the kernel at load time
For example: if in the z_main.cmd/z_auto.cmd files you have the parameter vga=0x0314, then a splash screen should be displayed, if it's absent, there should be no splash screen. This, and other kernel parameters, are not being passed correctly.
