1) Put the info File onto the root of the floppy
2) Here you have different pssibilities! The easiest is to specify it like this:
This causes yast to look for the file internet_cafe_BAC.xml in the dir suse/setup/descr of the installation directory...
other possibilities: have a look at
3) Have never heard of that file! "isolinux.cfg"?! Or do you mean syslinux.cfg? That is mainly for Kernel append Parameters just like lilo.conf! (Please correct me if I am wrong)
4) You can just do the same as during an DHCP installation. Just add a few lines to the 'info' file. What you need is the IP, gateway, netmask and nameserver. Also have a look at :

Subject: [suse-autoinstall] Create boot CD for use with NFS Server but without DHCP?

Good Day,

I need to create my own boot CDs for three or four PCs. I need a
completely unattended installation. AutoYast2, SuSE-8.0. I CANNOT USE

1) Where do I put my "info" file (NFS Server, CD, initrd, ...)?
2) Where do I put my ".xml" file?
3) What do I put into "isolinux.cfg"?
4) How do I tell it not to use dhcp?

I have tried about 30 different combinations now and it always says
"Sending dhcp request to eth0"....

Any ideas what I could be doing wrong? I would prefer a solution with
identical CDs but that's not a requirement.

Thank you very very much!

Erik Soyez.

P.S. I apologize, if some people get this
Email twice due to technical problems.
