Installing SLES 10.3, I'd like to pull the autoyast xml file from the
small custom ISO/CD I've booted from, whilst using an FTP site as the
location for the install files. For a particular machine I can do this
OK with something like this in the isolinux.cfg:
However, depending on the machine the CD might actually be hda or sr0 or
something else, in which case I'll get an error saying the profile can't
be found. I'd therefore like a more general 'autoyast=' statement that
will find the xml file no matter what the CD's device name.
Using 'autoyast=default' doesn't seem to work, as I think the fact that
my installation source is FTP means that it's looking there rather than
the CD. I realise that I could also grab the xml file via FTP, but the
way we install servers it would me much more convenient to have it on
Any suggestions as to how I can always find the xml file no matter what
the CD device name gratefully received.
