Hi all. I'm looking at trying to create a custom install disk for Freebsd based off an existing install to make reinstallation quick and painless

Hi Steve,
FreeBSD's install can be scripted...
Quoted from "BSD Hacks" by Dru Lavigne
"FreeBSD's install mechanism lives in /stand/sysinstall. Not surprisingly, man sysinstall describes all of the scriptable bits of this program. I'll go over some useful parameters, but you'll definitely want to skim through the manpage to see if there are additional parameters
suited to your particular environment.
FreeBSD also comes with a commented, ready-to-customize install script, located in /usr/src/usr.sbin/sysinstall/install.cfg. Copy this file, then edit the copy in your favorite

OTOH, a bootable dvd with a cloned image on it would be a much simpler solution, IMHO.


Things you'd like to say out lout at work, but can't...
What am I? Flypaper for freaks!?
