"This is the final article on installing opensuse. To recap
we've covered Configuring the DHCP Server, Installing Apache on
OpenSUSE, OpenSUSE PXE Boot and today we'll be tackling how to
automate an install with AutoYaST answer files.
"The final part of our installation jigsaw puzzle is to create
the answer file, in SUSE this is known as AutoYaST. If we were only
ever to install one server or one desktop then maybe we could do
without answer files; however where we need to install a few or
many then AutoYaST provides us with an unattended installation:- a
build script to create consistency and compliance we regulatory
bodies governing security. In short we need answer files."
