I was researching how to make an unattended install/boot cd rom for
The problem I want to solve is that I need to build a cd, which upon
into a brand new box upon booting will automatically does the following
1. partitioning the hard disks into several pre-determined partitions.
2. auto install the os without any user interations.
To do 2 it means that I can't run sysinit. I have a shell script that
does the foll
1. figure out the disk size.
2. perform partions.
3. unzip tar the os sets.
But the questions are:
1. how to build netbsd 1.6 so that it won't use sysinit but using the
t I wrote.
2. what changes do I have to add to make floppy and ramdisk. Is it
simply adding a
ramdisk-myram under the directory src/distrib/i386/floppies?
