Question Automatically boot LiveCD?


I'm building a custom microcore distro and was wondering how to get the livecd to boot automatically without needing to hit enter at the boot: prompt. Do all distros use the same approach? I'm also working on a Debian-based distro as well.

As far as I know Microcore uses isolinux to boot. You can easily customize the bootloader settings in the file isolinux.cfg.
Tutorials for that should easily be found on the web.

Over 9000 thank-yous. I modified the isolinux.cfg to these values:

Code:
prompt 0
timeout 0
