OK. I've been browsing through the archives and can't seem to find exactly what I need (although I can't believe no one else has asked this). Please forgive me if this has been answered and I have overlooked it. I've seen a lot of posts that get close to what I want but not quite enough to help my situation. I think I'm really close and just need to tweak a couple of media.X, order files, or infofile/kernel paramaters but I'm having trouble getting everything right.
I have all of the SLES9 CDs as well as the SP1 CDs. I need to create a single DVD from these. I have a script that I wrote that generates the autoinst.xml file and writes it to floppy. I just want to have my floppy inserted with the installation DVD and boot. I just can't seem to get the DVD properly created to work. It always end up going into manual installation mode. I was able to get it to "sort of" install except YaST said it couldn't find the installation media and then when I manually told it to boot from the hard drive (but selected had - which is my DVD-ROM drive) the rest of the install worked. However, I need to remove this manual part.
I want to be able to install from one DVD just like I can install from a NFS server. I do network installs all the time but the DVD install is not going so well.
What is the exact step-by-step procedure to create an autoinstalling DVD? Do I need any special info file or kernel parameters (instmode=cd or instmode=hd)?
Any help will be GREATLY appreciated.
