Configuration, Installation and Distribution. Basically, it's a standardized

install OS/2 (off any source like a LAN drive, custom CD, USB hard disk, or
possibly even over FTP) from start to finish, complete with all your
desired options and customizations, plus software, with nothing more than a few
presses of the Enter key.
Alternatively, you could write a completely new installer GUI for OS/2.
A few people/groups have done this (I think UpdCD does this for at least
parts of OS/2, but the most obvious example is eCS).
But it does involve something of a learning curve to set up.
Please take off hat when replying.
