Where can I get the code of installation??


I want to make a autoboot disk, but the procedure is different than that standard version. So I think I need to modify the installation code to suit for my purpose. Is there anyone can tell me where to get the code. thanks.

not sure i understand the question here? are you just trying to make a generic bootable disk? if you're trying to boot from a floppy, you can use 'make bzdisk' with the kernel.

If isajera's suggestion doesn't work, could you tell us what distro/version you are using, and perhaps be a little more clear about the exact problems you are having?

If you mean that you want instructions for the process of performing a new installation, it will depend on the distro and version (Redhat 7.2, Mandrake 8.1, etc.) you have, as well as the hardware installed in the computer.

Yes, that's what I want.

I want RedHat based on X86. Do you know where I can download the source code?

iso images of Redhat versions are available at Linuxiso.org. You would download the images and burn them to CDs to create the install disks. Read their documentation for more information on that.

As for step-by-step installation instructions, I haven't installed that version, so I can't walk you through it. I would suggest checking Redhat's support site for instructions. Read their Hardware Compatibility List carefully to verify that your computer's hardware is fully supported.

...maybe also have a look at Red Hat's kickstart utility for making setup scripts.

sorry

sorry~~ I misunderstanding what you mean. The iso file is good, but I still can't change the install procedure. The iso file should be my last step of this work.

I want to add a driver to the kernel. And do not install something than standard. For instance web server. So first I need to write a driver and build a new kernel. Then write the installation program for removing some applications what I don't need. Last step is, make an iso file then burn it to CD.

If I don't do that, I have to install every computers manually. It's not efficiently.

Thanks!!
