I would like to create a menu system in Linux that is presented to the user when the VM is booted. The menu system will list available actions and setup that is relevant to the purpose of the VM. I am not thinking of modifying the boot loader, but create a interactive menu system that presents the functionality of the VM that I create it for. Much like many virtual appliances that are deployed in vmware.
Does any one here know of any good sources of reading to learn how to set this up?
