FreeBSD's install can be scripted...
Quoted from "BSD Hacks" by Dru Lavigne
"FreeBSD's install mechanism lives in /stand/sysinstall. Not
surprisingly, man sysinstall
describes all of the scriptable bits of this program. I'll go over
some useful parameters, but
you'll definitely want to skim through the manpage to see if there are
suited to your particular environment.
FreeBSD also comes with a commented, ready-to-customize install
script, located in
/usr/src/usr.sbin/sysinstall/install.cfg. Copy this file, then edit
the copy in your favorite
OTOH, a bootable dvd with a cloned image on it would be a much simpler
Things you'd like to say out lout at work, but can't...
What am I? Flypaper for freaks!?
