Hi to all.

I'm trying to realize a custom boot cd for automating network
installation of SuSE 8.2. I created autoinst.xml (with autoyast2) and
copied it on the root directory of SuSE boot cd (as found on SuSE ftp).
I copied boot cd on /tmp/test_cd, then modified
/tmp/test_cd/boot/loader/isolinux.cfg this way:

default auto1

# autoinstall
label auto1
kernel linux
append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=65536 autoyast=file:/autoinst.xml
install=ftp://my_suse_ftp_mirror/pub/suse_mirror/8.2/ ip=
netmask= gateway=

# hard disk
label harddisk
kernel linux
append SLX=0x202 showopts

< unmodified part>

I recreated cd image with:

mkisofs -o prova1.iso -b boot/loader/isolinux.bin -no-emul-boot
-boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table /tmp/test_cd

and burned it successfully.

The boot process starts correctly and I can reach YaST2 screen. After a
while YaST2 complains about the lack of autoinst.xml and there is no way
for me to make it read from the CD.
Identical problem if I try to read it from floppy (modifying or not the
"autoyast=..." boot option).

Any hints?
