is it possible to skip steps of the installation procedure, like
partitioning and software installation?
I'm trying to set up an autoyast profile (for an installation CD) that
basically just asks a few (network) values in the initial stage,
patches them back into the bootloader section of the profile and then
just installs the bootloader with these values, skipping everything
else. After reboot, the machine uses the boot parameters to fetch the
"real" installation profile from a server and does a "normal"
installation. (After installation, the machines will be managed by
The reason I'm trying to do this is twofold: First, I have to give
those discs out to users and would like to never change them, if
possible. Thus, the split-up between "bootstrap" and the real,
changeable, profile on the network. Second, it is unlikely these users
will have DHCP available, and I don't want them having to type endless
boot parameters like
hostip=184.108.40.206 netmask=255.255.255.0 gateway=220.127.116.11
So, is this possible with autoyast, or do I have to resort to putting
more complexity on the CD, (changing things after installation with
bcfg2) and possibly sending out new discs for profile
errors/enhancements and new openSUSE releases?
