FTP Network Install - Fedora 7 Base directory?


Can anyone tell me where I can find the Base directory on the Fedora 7 DVD?

I am trying to set up a ftp network install but it tells me that I need to copy the files from the base directory on the DVD and I can't seem to find it.

Not sure if this will help, but I can tell you how I did it using NFS. I created a directory called /mnt/fedora and entered it in /etc/exports. Then I mounted the DVD image using mount -t iso9660 -o loop /home/data/F-7-i386-DVD.iso /mnt/fedora on the server. When the boot CD asked I entered the IP address and /mnt/fedora. The installation took right off after that.

Hi Bill,

Sorry I didn't repost to this after I solved what Base directory means.

The person who wrote how to do remote installs meant base directory as in the files on shown when you first explore the DVD.

So we got it to work and I am happy
