RedHat EL4 WS Deployment over a network?


I'm very new to deploying RedHat.

One of the things I find very annoying is that RedHat does not provide a DVD .iso for EL WS 4.

Aside from that, I'm fairly certain you should be able to copy and automate the install over a network.

Can someone point me in the right direction on how to do this?

Any input would be greatly appricated.

Install a NFS Server
then boot the clients with a disk or 1st boot cd then install over nfs.
Or like I did it just for fun and learning purpose.
PXE boot and connect to TFTP Server.

You also can use FTP or HTTP as install source.
