I need to install several computers with suse 9.1.
I would like to create a boot CD-ROM, when I insert it, it performs an automated setup from a FTP Server.

I know how to perform a FTP setup, and I know how to create an automated setup. Does anyone know how to combine this, and so create a custom boot CD-ROM.

    Use SFTP macros.

    This is by far the easiest way ;)
