NAME

       bootcd2disk.conf - configuration file for bootcd2disk

DESCRIPTION

       The   file  bootcd2disk.conf  contains  configuration  option  for  the
       bootcd2disk(1) program of the same named  package.  The  file  must  be
       located in the configuration directory which is usually /etc/bootcd.

       Blank  lines  are ignored and lines with leading # are comments. Values
       have to be set with name=value

       You can use a wildcard named DISK<number> to specify partitions instead
       of  e.g. /dev/hda<number>. DISK was replaced by $DISK, which can be set
       by the same named parameter.

FORMAT

       ERRLOG=<path>
              Write all errors to this file. Required.

       DISK=<device|auto>
              Specify the disk you want to  use  for  the  installation,  e.g.
              /dev/hda  for  the  first  IDE  drive  in the system. If you use
              "auto", bootcd2disk automatically try to use the first hard disk
              in the system. Required.

       SFDISK=<partitions in sfdisk syntax|auto>
              Configuration  options  for sfdisk, which creates the partitions
              for us. If you use "auto", we  create  default  partitions  "/",
              "/boot" and a swap partition. Required.

       VFAT=<partitions separated by spaces>
              Configure vfat partitions there, if you need some. Optional.

       EXT2FS=<partitions separated by spaces|auto>
              Specify  the  partitions  with ext2 or ext3 (see next parameter)
              here. This partitions would be created and formated. If you  use
              "auto",  the  "/"  and  the  "/boot" partition would be created.
              Required.

       EXT3FS=<yes|no>
              Enter "yes" If you want ext3 partitions. If you use "auto",  the
              systems use ext3 partition, if the kernel supports it. Required.

       SWAP=<partitions separated by spaces|auto>
              The partitions configured there are created as swap. If you  use
              "auto", one swap partition is been created. Required.

       MOUNT=<mount <partition> <mountpoint>; ... |auto>
              Insert  here  the mount command line to mount your partitions or
              use "auto". Required.

       UMOUNT=<umount <mountpoint>; ... |auto>
              Insert here the mount command line to umount your partitions  or
              use "auto". Required.

       FSTAB=<entries for the systems fstab |auto>
              Configure  here  all  partitions  you need to mount after target
              systems startup in the fstab syntax or use "auto". Required.

       LILO=<entries for the systems lilo.conf |auto>
              This variable includes the complete configuration file  for  the
              lilo   bootloader   on   the   target  system.  Use  "auto"  for
              automatically generated file. Only required, if you  want  LILO.
              Make sure GRUB is not defined as empty.

       GRUB=<entries for the systems grub/menu.lst |auto>
              This  variable  includes the complete configuration file for the
              grub  bootloader  on  the  target   system.   Use   "auto"   for
              automatically generated file. Only required, if you want GRUB.

       GRUBBOOTDIR=<number of partition which contains grub-dir | 0>
              This  variable  defines  the partition where the grub bootloader
              information is stored. You want to use this if you have  defined
              your own partition layout and the grub information is not on the
              first partition. Remember that grub starts  counting  partitions
              at 0. So if you decided that /boot is on partition /dev/sda2 you
              need to set the parameter to 1.

       ELILO=<entries for the systems elilo.conf |auto>
              Same as LILO but for the elilo bootloader on ia64 systems.   Use
              "auto"  for  automatically generated file. Only required, if you
              want ELILO.

       SSHOSTKEY=<yes|no>
              If you are using ssh it is helpful to have a unique ssh  hostkey
              for  each  system  installed  with  bootcd2disk.  This  will  be
              generated if this option is set to "yes". Required.

       UDEV_FIXNET=<yes|no>
              If you are using the udev filesystem and  want  to  install  the
              image  on  other machines, you need to set this to "yes" because
              the      network      interfaces      are      hardwired      in
              /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules  and  we  must remove
              them. Required.

       USEIMAGESERVER=<yes|no>
              If bootcd2disk is slow on your system (because of a slow  CD/DVD
              drive  or  the HP ILO virtual CD interface), you can use a image
              server to get the bootcdimage from.
              bootcd2disk use the swap partition of your  upcoming  system  as
              temporary  space  and  copy  the image from the configured image
              server to this partition and use it as image. May be overwritten
              from   command   line   "-url".  Need  the  following  parameter
              "IMAGEURL". Required.

       IMAGEURL=<url>
              This    option    configures    the     image     server     for
              USEIMAGESERVER="yes".  The  <url>  is  used  with  wget, all url
              syntax from wget are possible. Please use a ip because of failed
              DNS  and  you  need  also  the  configured  ip interface. May be
              overwritten from command line (-url). Required.

               example:
                   IMAGEPURL="https://192.168.1.1:81/cdimage.iso"

       function before_copy() {
              return
              }
              If you want some action before copying the system to the  target
              disk, like remount or other thinks, you can write this action to
              the body of this function. Optional.

       function after_copy() {
              return
              }
              If you want some action after copying the system to  the  target
              disk, like remount or other thinks, you can write this action to
              the body of this function. Optional.
