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

Thanks I will try that.

Is there a way to probe for the mouse?

Is there a way to have the install program ask for certain things? i.e. I
would like the user to decide either to install French or English.

Here are some excerpts from my ks.cfg and isolinux.cfg

This is what is in the isolinux.cfg file:

label ks
  kernel vmlinuz
  append text ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg initrd=initrd.img \
    lang= devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=9216

This is part of my ks.cfg

#Generated by Kickstart Configurator

#Clear all partitions from the disk
clearpart --all --initlabel
#Disk partitioning information
%include /tmp/partinfo
#sYstem  language
lang en_US
#Language modules to install
langsupport fr_FR --default=en_US
#System keyboard
keyboard us
#System mouse
mouse generic3ps/2
#Sytem timezone
timezone America/New_York
#Root password
rootpw --iscrypted $1$7AiDFtJ0$yTv/JjaqGtSHgwrECVVei/
#Reboot after installation
#Use text mode install
#Use interactive kickstart installation method
#Install Red Hat Linux instead of upgrade
#Use CDROM installation media
#System bootloader configuration
bootloader --useLilo --linear --location=mbr
#Clear the Master Boot Record
zerombr yes
#Partition clearing information
clearpart --all --initlabel
#System authorization infomation
auth  --useshadow  --enablemd5
#Firewall configuration
firewall --high
#Do not configure XWindows

and then your %pre section
