Abstract

The Red Hat* Linux* Web-Based Installation Kickoff Process consists of a cross-platform Web front-end that collects installation information from the user, a server-side scripting language back-end that processes the user input and creates a bootable image that can be used to initiate the installation process. It reduces the time and skill necessary to configure a Red Hat Linux system build by using a GUI front-end with parameter validation in place of a text-based editor.
