Re: Kickstart on CD




Prasanna,

Put the ks.cfg file in the root of the CD with folder structure thus:

\---cd_root                                .discinfo, training-ks-ata.cfg, training-ks-scsi.cfg
    |                                        
    |---isolinux                        boot.msg, isolinux.bin, isolinux.cfg
    |                                        
    \---RedHat                                
        |
        |---base                        
        |                        
        \---RPMS                        

Edit the isolinux.cfg file:
vi /cd_root/isolinux/isolinux.cfg

default hdd
prompt 1
timeout 600
display boot.msg
F1 boot.msg
F2 options.msg
F3 general.msg
F4 param.msg
F5 rescue.msg
F7 snake.msg
label linux
  kernel vmlinuz
  append initrd=initrd.img
label text
  kernel vmlinuz
  append initrd=initrd.img text
label expert
  kernel vmlinuz
  append expert initrd=initrd.img
label ks
  kernel vmlinuz
  append ks initrd=initrd.img
label lowres
  kernel vmlinuz
  append initrd=initrd.img lowres
label training-ata
  kernel vmlinuz
  append ks=cdrom:/training-ks-ata.cfg initrd=initrd.img
label training-scsi
  kernel vmlinuz
  append ks=cdrom:/training-ks-scsi.cfg initrd=initrd.img
label hdd
  localboot 0x80

Run this command to make the iso:

mkisofs -o ~/isos/training.iso -r -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -R -J -v -T /cd_root/

Hope this helps.

Matthew

Kickstart on CD





I am trying to create a customized minimal linux CD by placing ks.cfg in
the isolinux directory of my CD.
This way, I am not making use of the dosutils directory.
However, during the boot process, it fails to find the kickstart file on
my CD and the installation halts.
On my other tty, I see the message "Searching for file on path
/tmp/mnt//ks.cfg".

Has anyone encountered the above issue before? Any help/pointers would
be greatly appreciated. I am trying
create the CD using RHEL 4.0 (base version with no updates) for x86_64.
I am making use of the below mentioned URL to create my customized
minimal Linux CD.

Please find the extract of my isolinux.cfg file in the isolinux
directory below:
-bash-2.05b$ cat isolinux.cfg
default myks
prompt 1
timeout 0
display snake.msg
label myks
 kernel vmlinuz
 append ks=cdrom initrd=initrd.img text ramdisk_size=8192

thanks
Prasanna
