Re: Few questions

Hi,
I'm using kickstart (with pungi) to create a custom CD installer. I
have a few questions about the possibility of doing a few things with
kickstart and if it is, how... thanks in advance :
* select "resize partitionning" by default (dual boot with windows)

* add a user (for some reason I get a prompt for root password but no
user creation). Do I have to use firstboot for this ? * rename the generated grub entry "Other" into "Windows"
* make grub default entry the windows one

Thanks in advance.

The kickstart options page that I use for reference is http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/Installation_Guide-en-US/s1-kickstart2-options.html

I'm not familiar with a kickstart directive that will shrink a windows partition and then lay out appropriate linux partitions in the freed up space. There might be something that can be done in %pre to shrink a windows partition, but generally it would be a better idea to have the windows partition pre-shrunk before installing linux.

The remaining items can be done in %post with scripts.
