RE: How to Create a Custom Bootable Redhat 9.0 CD on a single CD



I believe I was the one that send you the email regarding to RedHat 9.0.
In your article, you mention that you didn't have to rebuild comps.xml
because you install the full @core and @base group.  In my case, if I
take out some of the package from the @core /@base group, do I need to
rebuild comps.xml.

Also, what file tells anaconda which CD the packages is on?

I believe someone sent a message to this mailing list
that had comments to get my article working with RH9.
Unfortunately, I don't have it handle, because my
computer is packed away. I know searching these
archives are very easy, but it may be worth your while
to try to find that posting.

Just curious, why haven't you been successful with the
ks.cfg file?
