I posted a message a while back in March... Still no Redhat on my Toshiba Laptop-I gave up on it for quite some time..Now I am looking into installing via FTP rather than mess with the pcmcia cdrom. I have a bootnet.img floppy, so I can get in to the install portion-Let me share with you what is happening thus far.... I got to the "Installation Method" after selecting "FTP", the next screen is "Configure TCP/IP"-It asks for my machines IP address,netmask default gateway(IP) & primary nameserver...Ok I get that in, and a little box says "determining host name and domain"-then it brings me to the FTP setup-so far so good..I tried several ftp site names to enter in the first box (along with the dir path in the other box)-I get the "unknown host" box after a few seconds. It will then say "so and so.net.com" is not a valid hostname-I have tried entering the ftp site name with & without the "ftp://" I would just enter the site name itself..still getting "invalid hostname"
I am determined to do this-by all means necessary!!!!
