Automated installations

Hi George,

cool reply. Thank you. ;-)

That basically means that I have to compile/burn my own CD with the  
config file install.cfg in it right ?

is there a version f.e. to start from the CD (with some parameters  
where the config file is located) and do that from a boot floppy -  
basically without PXEboot  or can I point PXEboot to the CD image AND  
the install.cfg somehow ?

Best regards

Nils Valentin
