    RHEL 6 USB Boot Key


    I'm looking for a suggestion how to split the current RHEL 6.1 Workstation DVD.iso into two smaller ISO's to put on a fat32 usb drive that will be used for replicated installs.

    Thanks in advanced.

    What I would do is figure out what packages are not needed for your install then rip them out.

    Do this on one of your installed RHEL workstations to get a list of all RPMS you will need to keep:
    Code:
    rpm -qa
    Then:
    1. mount your iso image as a loopback filesystem
    2. copy the entire contents to a new directory
    3. remove any packages not in the list from their location in the new directory
    4. make a new iso file from the new directory

    I do this with Fedora / CentOS to make custom install CDs (not DVDs).
