In this excellent document, Adrian Malaguti gives a step-by-step rundown of how to set up an automatic SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 installation environment, using PXE to start the boot and install process across a network. In this process, all set-up is done without user intervention. From the booting up process, components and packages selection, to the final stages and customization.

Included in these steps are:

  • Building a software repository
  • Enabling HTTP access to the repository
  • Installing a TFTP server
  • Preparing network boot images
  • Installing a DHCP server
Though this document could be considered highly technical, it includes detailed charts and images explaining the process.
