minimal install - was Re: starting Fedora Server SIG



I have successfully tested booting a minimal Fedora system that should
be able to install more packages. Here are the steps for "bootstrapping"
such system:

- use USB flashdisk > cca 600MB (installed pkgs + yum cache), format a
partition as ext3, mount as /mnt
- yum --installroot=/mnt --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=development
install grub kernel initscripts yum plymouth-text-and-details-only
- install grub to the MBR of the flashdisk
- create /etc/fstab (/ + /proc + /sys)
- run mkinitrd --with-usb
- set password for root
- boot
