Trying to create a bootable USB flash drive to install RHEL (4 or 5) on servers
 
Good morning:

I have been poking around the site and finally decided to register. It looks like there are a lot of good ideas and information from very helpful folks.

Hoping you can help me - I am a bit of a newbie to Linux (I can manage the basics and have a superficial understanding/basic knowledge) but this task is a bit beyong me.

I would like to build an install USB flash drive (8gb Kingston) to use when I build new servers. We are currently deploying 64-bit RHEL 4.6 as fast as I can keep up. I figured a bootable install and perhaps a kickstart would reduce the pain.

If anyone knows a resource I can use/follow or can explain in detail I would be incredibly greatful!

Thanks to all.

Did you look at RedHat?

Well, I did search the knowledgebase but obviously not enough. Thanks for the reply - I already built and will be testing this morning. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction - I will continue to experiment though since I want the entire install from the USB and a kickstart to manage it.
