Installing Mandrake without ISO???


Obviously, newbie here.

I saw it on Mandrake's website that 9.2 is out, but no iso available yet.
http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3

How do I install Mandrake 9.2 without iso images?

What if I can get my hands on the 9.1 CDs? Does that help?

Is there a way to do it without 9.1 CDs?

Thanks,

AC

Go to the web site you posted. Download the boot and root disks. Rawrite the boot disk images onto floppy disks. Boot with them, and begin network installation.

Yes there is a way to install without the cd's. You could download the entire Mandrake tree from the internet (its over 1.5 gb), and put it on blank partition. Then boot using a boot disk and root disk, and install off of that partition. But, you would be better off getting the CD's. The ISO's should be out shortly.

Thanks LinuxBotX.

Just want to clarify, am I required to download the entire linux tree onto a partition before I download and boot from the boot and root discs, or will the bootable discs automatically download the required files from the tree?

Ok, thats up to you. You can do either a network install (install from the internet) or a hdd install install the tree from your hdd). Its your choice.

But I just want you to know, that the Mandrake 9.2 ISO images are available for download now.

Goto: ftp://raven.cslab.vt.edu/pub/linux/mandrake/iso/

or go to Mandrakes site for a list of mirrors.
