RE: RH9 custom installation CD - some basic questions



So I have to combine the 2 options (i.e. use buildinstall and kickstart)?

1. I made a one CD distro and did not use splitdistro and it worked 3. Yes, just put all the answers in a ks.cfg file and anaconda will install with no user interaction.

Subject: RH9 custom installation CD - some basic questions

We need to create a CD that will include a minimal Redhat 9 installation and the installation of our software product, so that all one will have to do is boot a new machine with the CD and the RH9 and our product will be automatically installed. I have gone through the archives and here's what I understand. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
?
Regarding the first part (automatic minimal installation of RH9), I have 2
options:
1. I can create a Kickstart installation, e.g. following Brett Schwarz's article - http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6473. By the way, is there an update of this article for RH9? 2. I can create an installation CD using buildinstall, e.g. following Luigi Bitonti's article - http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/howto/other-formats/html_single/RedHat
-CD-HOWTO.html.
Now, from what I understand, I can use either one. Right? What are the arguments for each option?
?
Regarding the second part (automatic installation of our product too), is the situation any different?
?
And some more questions:
1. According to Luigi Bitonti's article, I'm supposed to use splitdistro. But the idea was to have only 1 CD. So, can I simple use the 1st CD, and ignore the rest? 2. Do the 2 options mutually exclude each other, or is there a situation in which I'll combine them? 3. I don't intend this CD to be used by a power user, so I want everything to be automatic. I don't want the user to have to answer questions. Does it mean that I have to create a kickstart installation CD (in order for all the questions to be answered in advance)?
?
Thanks,
Ido
