Oz is a tool for automatically installing operating systems into files with only minimal up-front input from the user.

For each type of guest operating system, Oz supports up to three operations: operating system installation, operating system customization, and ICICLE (manifest generation). More information about these operations is available on the Oz Architecture page.

NOTE: Support for new operating systems and revisions is manually added, so when new versions come out Oz needs to be updated to be able to install the new version. If the new minor version is sufficiently similar to the last one, then telling Oz to use the old one with a new CD may work, but this is not guaranteed.
