I wasn't aware of that. That's good to know.Instead of an "install" script, which is somewhat unusual, would it be possible to offer a means which might fit better into a typical environment, like perhaps set up the Installation Toolkit media as a yum repository, then one could just do something like "yum install ibm-power-toolkit"?

The install script does just what you described, but in an automated way.If you wish to setup the Installation Toolkit media as a Yum repository, that's possible. Just mount the Installation Toolkit DVD somewhere and configure Yum to point to <mount point>/repos/<distro>/, where <distro> is 'rhel5', 'rhel6', 'sles10' or 'sles11', depending on your environment.Keep in mind that Yum might also need access to a distro installation repository, in order to install dependencies required by Installation Toolkit.Once you have setup everything, type:$ yum install ibmit4linuxand you are done.But again: what I have just described is what is done by the installation script.Thanks,Rodrigo
