<pre wrap="">Hey there - I have a tutorial i wrote for my own docs - not sure if you
guys want it on the centos wiki.
It is a custom centos server 4X disk in which the install connects to a
remote listening VNC viewer.
The purpose of this disk is simple - to be able to install a second
system with centos without having to hook up a keyboard/mouse/monitor.
This second machine is my test machine, and I wipe/install often on it.
I needed/wanted to use a disk for install as I do not have a 3rd machine
(or the room for it) to house a NFS server with images on it. In a
nutshell - I got sick of lifting a heavy ass CRT out of my storage every
time i wanted to install.
I suspect it should be located et howtos under misc.
I suggest the article name "VNC Remote Install Disk".
As I said - I have it written, but I am going to run through it once to
update it for centos 4.4 (once the server CD is out).
I am not sure if you guys are even interested.
interested yes, but could you not achieve the same thing with the 'vnc'
parameters to the normal installer ?
When I looked into doing this a while ago, I had not seen a way to do
exactly what I was hoping to accomplish (or at least I never found it)
- and that is being able to dump in the disk with no
keyboard/mouse/monitor and go. There were certain interactions with the
keyboard (IE media checks, etc) to get the install to actually start.<br>
Does that make sense?<br>
