Re: [opensuse] To add kernel options in ISO file?

I extracted the ISO content, and get this for openSUSE-NET-Build0091-i586.iso:
# ls -l
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 133 Aug 1 03:32 ARCHIVES.gz
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 200 Aug 1 03:32 ChangeLog
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 718 Aug 1 03:32 INDEX.gz
dr-xr-xr-x 3 root root 2048 Aug 1 03:33 boot
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 4587 Aug 1 03:33 content
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 481 Aug 1 03:33 content.asc
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 81 Aug 1 03:33 directory.yast
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 1517 Aug 1 03:32 ls-lR.gz
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 2048 Aug 1 03:33 media.1
dr-xr-xr-x 3 root root 2048 Aug 1 03:32 suse


What is the file I should change, to add to kernel options for ever, for
example "acpi=off nomodeset" (to install opensuse) ?

/boot/x86_64/loader/isolinux.cfg

or in your particular case since you got the i586 iso,

/boot/i586/loader/isolinux.cfg

google linuxrc to see what options are available

google syslinux for the syntax to that file

I don't know what you should consult for the simplest way to modify the existing iso and still have the new iso actually boot up and work the same way the original does.

Personally I only ever use pxe and an http mirror or usb any more. I use an actual cd or dvd so rarely that it's less work to enter boot params on the fly than to remaster my own disk.
