Anas,
Is it possible to get the installation process to find package descriptions
on any media other than media.1?
As soon as I changed the name from media.6 to media.1 it saw my package
descriptions and selection files, of course the required rpms on the real
media 1 were not there.

I have this working, the NFS builds work fine, but, when building from CD I
do not get any software selection files. This is curios, I have the same
suse/setup/descr/* files on the CD as the NFS repository. If anybody has any
idea as to why the selections and software can not be found I would
appreciate the help.

Is it possible to create a new bootable cd for a sles8 set, that has
customized initrd, and suse/setup/descr, xmls files and customized packages
that I could boot off without having to edit disk1 in the set?

Example: I have a 5 disk set, I make my own rpms, I add some .sel files to
suse/setup/descr, I make an info file in an initrd that installs via nfs,
one for booting off cd and uses xml files located in /profiles of the
initrd. Has a custom isolinux.cfg to choose which xml script to use.

I then bundle all of that up into a bootable disk6 boot off of this disk,
choose a boot menu choice. And then have it ask me to insert CD1?

Thanks,

Todd Ness
