[opensuse-project] [GSoC] Porting Wubi to OpenSUSE [midterm report]

Hi all:
here is an overview of my project:
work has been done:
* wubi program has been modified so that it could do the first installation
stage work for openSUSE, including iso image download/validation, creation
of related files in windows, and collection information for automatic
after the windows program running and exit, there will be an install entry in
windows boot menu, the automatic installation would follow that entry.

work to do:
* patch the init program so that it could recognize virtual disks which are
regular files under widows.
* create customized autoyast control file to support automatic installation.

current problem:
* the "init" program in initrd is a single binary program (in
Ubuntu it's a shell
script), which is hard to patch on the fly.

if you have any suggestion or comment, please do not hesitate to send me:)
