Red Hat 7.3 ISO's


Do you need all 3? I usually install most of the software. It's been a while since I used Linux

Nope, you don't need all 3. The 1st CD is the only required CD because it has all the mandatory files/progs. CD 2 is the 'extra' CD, which includes some more programs of the same nature to those already installed, and things such as themes. CD 3 is the sources CD... I think.

Actually with 7.3, you may want all 3 cd's. When I did a basic install on a machine, it required all 3 cd's. Even though it copied like 2 files from the 3rd cd, it still needed it to finish the install.

if you install without any thing (in custom install )then you need no other CD. other wise if you select any thing you need the other cds,if you select only to install with dialup support then you need 2 cds. but cd1 contains both gnome and kde , but the xfree86-lib-modules and xfree86-svga s3 mach64 like rpms are located on cd3
and also some SRPMS.
the best solution i have got is to make images from cds and copy it in one folder on any fat or fat32 partition and also copy the dosutils folder from cd1 . now boot from any dos cd like win98se bootable cd. and type autoboot from dosutils folder, the installation will be start then give it the folder of images.
and save you time no need of any cd or even a linux bootable floppy. the fastest method.
