Unhappy ftp/http install not working

my system does not support a cdrom, so I need to install over the network. I first tried to pull the installation across from but that didn't work. I then tried to pull the installation from a RH9 box that is on the same network, after I installed vsftp on it - still no luck.

The computer that I want to install linux on does have a working nic because I could ping it from the RH9 system.

As far as I know, vsftp is setup correctly, but I am not that sure - have never setup an ftp server before.

ftp to localhost from my RH9 box works fine.

thanks for any help

firewall on your rh9 box turned on and rejecting access from outside to your ftp server?
