Re: Re:Re: install from custom

Regarding Brett Schwarz's method, did you notice that in RH9 the boot.img &
boot.cat files are in different place vs. RH8.  You should specify the
correct name/location in your 'mkisofs' command.

After you try the 2nd way, let us know if it worked for you, and what its

BTW, if you have problems in choosing packages according to dependencies I
can give you a simple way to do that, that I figured out.

Thanks for the suggestion.  After posting my message, that was the next
thing I tried.  Unfortunately, it did not work for me.  I can not imagine
what I might have  done wrong since it is just copying a file.  Anyway,
someone else posted his "recipe" for making RH9 CD-ROMs and those steps have
worked for me.  I have been able to remove unwanted packages and add non-rh
packages and get it to fit on a single CD-ROM.  The last step is to upgrade
the rh9 packages and put the kickstart file on the CD-ROM so that I'm only
prompted to set the root password.  I think this part of the process was
working for me already so I'm hopeful that I will meet might objective

Thanks again for your reply!  It is appreciated.
