I need to autoinstall SUSE (10.0 as soon as it becomes available) using an USB-HDD instead of a DVD or CD-ROMs. How can i use that HDD instead of a boot CD as installation medium?
The easy part will be to copy the CD-ROMs to that drive, and put installation scripts (xml and post-install-scripts) on that drive, too. How do i make that HDD bootable like a CD-ROM? Any hints on how to proceed are very welcome.
I would like to have the machine automatically (without user interaction) installed when the USB HDD drive is plugged in. The machines have no CD-ROM-drive, and the ethernet connection cannot easily be used during the install, as the NForce-4-Onboard-LAN is not recognized bei SUSE 10.0 RC1 and must be installed manually after an installation from CD-ROM.
