If the Oses are on the same machine i.e. if you have a dual boot machine then you will have to mount the windows drives in linux. If the machines are on the network, you will need a samba server that will allow you file sharing between linux and windows machines.

You can find out the partitions on which windows is installed by giving the command
sudo fdisk -l
Assuming that you have only one hdd in your system, it is probably sda.
If windows is installed in sda1 and formatted as ntfs you need
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/win.
You will need to have ntfs-3g tool installed. You can install it using the package manager of your distribution and /mnt/win directory should exist. You can mount it anywhere you wish.
If you want to make the changes permanent or wish to mount the drives at boot time, edit the /etc/fstab file accordingly.

well really speaking, --nodeps will solve your problems just for the sake. It will not look for dependencies and install it any way. rpm command will tell you what dependencies are to be met. If you can download them, well and good. Otherwise, try installing it with --nodeps option.

You can get rpms from dag wieers. Just google for it. You will get information about dependencies when you install them.
I do not remember exactly how to create kickstart file but there is some tool in rhel that helps you create it. You can search the forum and you will find the answer.

Fizeen,

this is a double post and is generally frowned upon here.


Please see my response to your separate thread on this.
