Smile Unattended installation

Hi,
I read OpenBSD FAQ at http://www.openbsd.org/faq/fr/faq4.html#site
I understood well, that install.site/ Upgrade.site and of course SiteXX.tgz is enabled at the end of the installation.

My question, i boot on 4.7 RELEASE, choose "Install".
Is it possible to have an "true automatic installation" for example don't need to put mygate, myname, "root password" ... put all the answers in a script ?
And so have an install without any interaction with the user ?
I suppose not possible ? because all of that are in the "install.sub" script (from bsd.rd)
Thanks.

Correct.

Not without significantly changing the current installation scripts. Stuart's response to you on misc@ is correct. Stuart is also a project developer, & a good one at that.

If you are wanting an automatic installation process, you might want to look at yaifo:

However, it appears not to have been updated for at least a year.

No need for double posting. The question was already asked on misc@openbsd
