Project Description

Need somebody to develop a kickstart file which installs minimal Fedora 9 configuration with samba, java, php command-line interface, perl, phyton, ruby (httpd not required).

System should not require any manual configuration after it is installed.

I'll also need you to explain how the file can be customized:

1. Prepare a description how to make changes to the file, e.g. password, disk layout, timezone.

2. Prepare a description on how to add more packages to the installer.

3. Prepare a description on how to execute system initialization scripts on install (e.g. to add services or restore backups).

Descriptions are intended to save time so administrator does not have to spend hours searching internet for information, but still should be concise and can refer to existing online documentation.

System must be secure, it will be used by multiple users at a time, users must be isolated. Standard iptables firewall should be enabled, selinux should be in enforcing mode. Samba should be configured so it is possible to share folders belonging to normal uses. Services which are not necessary for system operation should be disabled.

I have here an approximate list of packages for minimal installation. I can send it to you, however it will likely needs to be tweaked by you to ensure that installed system is functional or probably to remove something that is not necessary.

Looking forward for your bids.
