inserting script in system install


At this point I can drop a CD in a computer and it will autoinstall slack for me. What I'm not been able to do is to find a point to insert a line to execute my own install script over and beyond what the distro provides.

It must be doable but I cannot find the point to add that line.
(I'm not talking about post-install but during the system install.)

Any help is much appreciated!

You'll have to insert it in the setup scripts in the install initrd -under /usr/lib/setup.


install, script, system
