    Question Trying to get syslinux to work with preseed

    We use syslinux to boot debian-installer. which then uses a preseed to automatically install ubuntu, and the unique packages we use on our systems.

    I am trying to create a menu system that allows you to pick with preseed you want to use. I have followed the instructions i could find, but after a day of struggling it just doesn't seem to be working the way everyone describes it.

    Here is the syslinux.cfg
    Code:
    MENU TITLE LOUD v6
    
    LABEL lcsee
    	menu label ^LCSEE
    	menu default
    	kernel linux
    	append debian-installer/locale=en_US console-setup/layout=USA console-setup/ask_detect=false console-setup/variant=USA debconf/priority=critical preseed/file=/cdrom/preseed/lcsee.seed initrd=/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=16432 root=/dev/ram rw quiet --
    
    LABEL hd
     	MENU LABEL ^Boot from first hard disk
    	localboot 0x80
    	append -
    
    DISPLAY syslinux.txt
    PROMPT 1
    TIMEOUT 300
    ONTIMEOUT lcsee
    
    F1 f1.txt
    F2 f2.txt
    F3 f3.txt
    F4 f4.txt
    F5 f5.txt
    F6 f6.txt
    F7 f7.txt
    F8 f8.txt
    F9 f9.txt
    F0 f10.txt
    I have also uploaded the cd image in a bz2 file onto my server:
    http://www.petederemer.com/lbm.tar.bz2

    Can anyone help me?
