What you saying is difficult to do as far as I know. You can read the excellent Howto "From bootup to Bash Prompt Howto" from It will give some initial direction to your problem.

hi all;

i wana build a system which will auto install Os and configure all the packages which is require for building a complete server from barebone pc.

for this i choose some steps to install a customized linux centos 5.2.

1. Take some user inputs at the begining of installation and store them on
ramdisk becz harddisk is unpartition yet, which will use after
installation and install OS from cd, and when it install os so after
that by scripts manage all the packages.

2. Install Os using Kickstart answer file:
First i made an Kickstart answer file but i dont have any place where i
make it available the only way to make it available is the cd/dvd.

i m working on the second step so i need some help in the syntax of kickstart answerfile directory not an NFS server or any other temp place but may b a removable media a usb or a cd but i dont know how to write a syntax for a dvd or a usb.

any suggestion ......
