9.2. How Do You Perform a Kickstart Installation?

Kickstart installations can be performed using a local CD-ROM, a local hard drive, or via NFS, FTP, or HTTP.

  1. Create a kickstart file.

  2. Create a boot diskette with the kickstart file or make the kickstart file available on the network.

  3. Make the installation tree available.

  4. Start the kickstart installation.
