I've been looking at the DF installer this weekend and was wondering
what is the easiest way to create an unattended install of the OS?
Ideally, I'd like to be able to boot a CD and return some time later to
a completely installed and configured base system.

I haven't tried this, but it should be possible to put all installer choices in a file called "pfi.conf" (for pre-flight installer) and place it on a floppy or USB stick and have it proceed automatically.

Example fo the file here, I think:
Thanks! Looking at this file, it appears to be a collection of options that affect the behavior and environment of the installer, which is a good start but doesn't seem to address the whole picture unless I'm missing something. In other words, I want to be able to automatically create the file systems and all the other things that the installer presents during an interactive install as well. Is this just a shell script that I need to create manually? How do I get the installer to launch it? Or am I approaching this from the wrong angle entirely?
