    Linux Registration Kit


    Hi,

    I've been set a rather interesting challenge, and I think Linux is more up to the task that M$ Windows.

    Basically, we have switched some systems over which require our students to register for new accounts. Problem is, to use the standard Windows loads, the students need to log in!! By now I'm sure you can see our problem!

    An idea is to run either Windows or Linux off a CD. What we want is for a broswer like Konquerer (we have SUSE 9.2 btw) to pop up in Kiosk mode which allows the students to register and do nothing else.

    I've seen Knoppix, but from what I can gather, it isn't too configureable.

    Does anyone have any ideas of how to load a basic SUSE build, configure it and put it onto CD?

    Cheers for any input!#

    Neil.

    SuSE has live cd's as well on ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/ . If it is not good enough you sure can use it as a source of information howto do it.

    I don't know but could you specify kiosk as the windowmanager. If that is possible it could solve your problem.
    I\'m so tired .....
