Hi again.

My objective is to get a .iso tu burn it on a cd to perform a debian
unattended installation. This is my scenario:

1. Fai_server: a pc with a only one NIC (is not possible to plug it to a second)

2. A LAN with other dhcp server different than the Fai_server

3. Virtualbox running on the Fai_server

I tried with this:

1. cp -Rv /srv/fai/config/ /srv/fai/nfsroot/live/filesystem.dir/var/lib/fai/

2. fai-cd -m /srv/fai/nfsroot/ /my_destination/imagen_fai_1.iso

3. Run the created 'Debian_pruebas' virtualbox machine against the

This fails, but I can't see the /tmp/fai/error.log.

I tried to run the virtualmachine against a Knoppix.iso image, but the
/tmp dir is empty.

The other sollution is to burn a cd-rw each time, but I wan't to avoid
it if it's possible. It is?

Thanks in advice
