Red Hat 8.0 Hard Drive Installation

Red Hat 8.0 Hard Drive Installation

It's me again! For many reasons I need to do an hard drive installation. The plan is the following: copy the CD's under win (that is in a fat32 partition) and use the images in there.
Questions
1) Does the install program read fat32 partitions?
2) Should I just copy the content of the 3 CD's (RedHat8) in three directories?
Thank you mates, you are really helpful!

1) yes (http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-8.0-Manual/install-guide/s1-begininstall-hd.html)

2) AFAIK, you should put all rpm's to one RPMS directory (check README onthe first CD)

Rgds,

Re: Red Hat 8.0 Hard Drive Installation

Once I made a network installation using a FTP server located on another machine. I worked well.
Maybe this could be an alternative solution good for you... :-)

Re: Red Hat 8.0 Hard Drive Installation

That's what I did indeed. The problem is that I'm not able to locate the 'CD (iso9660) images'.
Both /images and /isolinux don't work.
Thanks Claudio, but I'm installing all the stuff on an old laptop without good net access, it would take months... Thank you!
