In the SUSE Linux world, there is an AutoYAST tool that will let you script the OS install - every aspect, from partitioning to package selection to user IDs. Its all written into an XML file you can manage thru a GUI or even edit directly if you want.

Is there anything like this with RHAS/ES v2.1 or later? If so, is it part of the distro, or a 3rd-party tool?

    Assisted Solution

    When you install RHEL/CentOS/Fedora, it creates a file /root/anaconda-ks.cfg. The only thing you have to do is uncomment the partition information. Afterthat, you can install using this file by entering this at the CDROM prompt:

    linux text ks=floppy:/anaconda-ks.cfg

    if the file is on a floppy.
