Question cant figure out how to install the 2d CD?,


ok,i finally got redhat linux 7.0 1st CD to GUI, since i only installed KDE this time,

but now cant figure out how to install the 2d CD?,

File in CD 2 says

Mount/mnt/cdrom

See under ROOT-mnt/

Problem is so many items are opened in menu, I donít know where to start to install CD 2?

Insert CD 2
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

cp -var /mnt/cdrom/RedHat /location/of/disk/space

it says "no known "to this command >>RedHat /location/of/disk/space

what does this refer to, the location on drive to install to?

exactly what are the steps,commands??

'control panel'??? Isn't that a redmond tool, not a redhat tool?

I think they call it control center or something like that in redhat.

Your tone has just convinced me to unsubscribe from this thread.

And by the way ... Yes ... I am _experienced_ enough to provide real tips. Do some research and you will see that better than 99% of my posts are answers to noob's questions. But I will not tolerate someone's ill-aimed rants.

I don't know where you got those instructions at, but they make about no sense what-so-ever. Why would you want to copy the CD onto your HD? Wastes disk space. You can install any of the RPM's straight off the CD.

good day and good luck
