    RED HAT CD that boots a Kick-Start file on the CD without "boot:" prompt?

    I added a kick start config file to a Red Hat CD by re-creating the iso (so
    the cd is still bootable) like so:

    cp ks.cfg /tmp/redhat8
    mkisofs -r -j -o red.iso -b images/boot.img /tmp/redhat8
    cdrecord -vv dev=0,0,0 red.iso

    Note that boot.img is the boot image that boots the CD. When the CD boots
    eventually a prompt appears "boot:" and I input

    linux ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg

    How can I make my own boot.img hence replacing the current, so that I just
    boot the CD and my kick start file is read? Without typing the above command,
    i.e no "boot:" appears?

    Cheers,

    Lloyd

    I have never done this. I had a better link then this about creating custom cd's, but I can't find it right now. Google turned this up. Page 3 looks like what you want.
