Hi all

I'm busy creating a custom CentOS installation CD to be used with cPanel, which basically needs a minimum installation of Linux, but I would also like to use Xen for VPS' on the server, and thought I could do both at the same time - automatically install my server to my needs, and install Xen (without needing to run "yum install xen kernel-xen virt-manager" every time).

So, my question is. How would I add those RPM's to the custom CentOS CD, and install them, and then setup grub.conf to use the Xen kernel upon reboot as well?

All you have to do is add the list of packages you regularly yum-install to your kickstart file:

For your dom0 (host OS):



Kickstart-list mailing list
Kickstart-list redhat com

Ah, you said CD, my fault.

In Fedora I'd use Pungi, though since you also mentioned cPanel it would be better to set up a network installation environment. Even if you can't PXE, koan has live CD capability to provide the same feature set...



I can't entirely setup a PXE environment, since the servers are being colocated, and we can only do CD / DVD installations, or directly off the internet. And since I pay for bandwidth per MB, I'd prefer to have a CD, which I can then just give to each technician and they can install / reinstall servers from there with a specific setup
