Rebuild a FC4 CD!

Hi ppl!

I'm wondreing if it's possible to "rip" the anaconda installer from the FC4 DVD and build a MiniCD (bootable) with just anaconda to do a nfs install. I'm always make nfs installation and it's dommage to loose a DVD-R for that

Excuse my poor english, i'm french

You can use the boot.iso file from the images directory on the first cd.

I think you can create MiniKick CD with NFS for FC4 using my article.

Yes!
Check out the README file in the images directory
Quote:
This directory contains image files that can be used to create media
capable of starting the Fedora Core installation process.

The boot.iso file is an ISO 9660 image of a bootable CD-ROM. It is useful
in cases where the CD-ROM installation method is not desired, but the
CD-ROM's boot speed would be an advantage.

To use this image file, burn the file onto CD-R (or CD-RW) media as you
normally would.

The diskboot.img file is a VFAT filesystem image that can be written to a
USB pendrive or other bootable media larger than a floppy. Note that
booting via USB is dependent on your BIOS supporting this. It should
be written to the device using dd.

Ok i will use it later to make a unattended installation of my Fedora, it's very usefull. Good job dud
Thanx a lot mndar, that's all i was looking for

However, my objectiv is in fact to make a livecd with :
1/ Gentoo 2005.0 LiveCD
2/ Debian Sarge Netinstall 3.1r0a
3/ Anaconda Installer (for FTP/HTTP/NFS installation)

I would like to have choice to choose the distrib at boot by specifind the good parameter. Such as :

/or/
linux sarge
/or/
linux gentoo
Do you think guy it's possible ?
