Interactive setup


How do I get into interactive setup? I press "I" when it says so and return, I have tried many times can't seem to get into it.

Or how when I boot to the cd and get to the bash shell do I modify rc.local?

I am fairly new to Linux so be detailed please.

linux is case sensitive be sure your using a big I.

I don't uinderstand your second question. Are you asking how to edit the rc.local file? You can use one of several console text editors. like vi, pico or emacs depending on which is installed.

vi /etc/rc.local

You might want to search the web for vi commands.

I geuss my question actually is how do cd to my directory /etc/rc.d0 do I have to include the hda or something similar? When I boot from the CD it mounts under /mnt/sysimage.

Should be:
cd /mnt/sysimage/etc/rc0.d

If you want to run RH based on /mnt/sysimage as your root directory:
chroot /mnt/sysimage

Sorry my spelling wasn't that good, it was actually in /etc/rc.d/ . I used vi and edited the file and was able to boot no problem.

Thanks for your help michaelk, it was all right there in front of me, I was just not paying attention, although it was the first time I was attempting such a thing.
