After your hardware has been prepared for the installation of SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server as described in the Architecture-Specific Information manual and after the connection with the installation system has been established, you are presented with the interface of SUSE's system assistant YaST. YaST takes care of all the following steps to set up the system, guiding you through the entire installation and configuration procedure.
For IBM S/390 and zSeries platforms, the system is initialized (IPL) as described in the Architecture-Specific Information manual. SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server does not show a splash screen on these systems. During the installation, load the kernel, initrd, and parmfile manually. YaST starts with its installation screen as soon as a connection has been established to the installation system via VNC, X, or SSH. As there is no splash screen, kernel or boot parameters cannot be entered on screen, but must be specified in a parmfile (see the parmfile chapter in the Architecture-Specific Information manual for a description).
