Installing Tru64 without CD ROM

Hi All,

I want to install Tru64 on Alpha 1200 Server but that server doesn't have a CD ROM and I have a CD to install the OS.

Is it possible to copy the contents of CD to a SCSI disk and then installing Tru64 through that disk. Something similar to image copy in VMS.

If that possible could anyone help me to know the command to copy the content of CD to SCSI disk so that I can install Tru64 using that SCSI disk.

Regards,

"man dd"? Where do you intend to do the
CD-ROM-to-disk copy?

I have enough cheap (<= $10) SCSI CD-ROM
drives lying around that I've never had any
reason to try dd or anything else like it
for this kind of thing.

Hi Steven,

I already found one CD ROM lying in our lab scrap... :-) and now installation is under progress....

Thanks a lot for your time.
