Iso Problems


Hi guys

I am as we say in Brasil a 0 on the left whe the subject is Linux..Newbee!!

I have a dedicate server in UK Which I just signed up with a company called Fasthost.

1.8GHz 2MB Cache Intel® Core 2 Duo processor
512 MB RAM
80 GB hard disk drive
Remote server control - keyboard, mouse & video control

I manage to upload a ISO file to the server Trixbox-2.2.9.iso

I read all the manual to mount the ISo file. WITH NO LUCK!!

By the way I dont have a Ubuntu desktop . What I have a black screen which looks like a DOS to me.

Question!!

HOw Can I install the Trixbox-2.2.9.iso to the server?? Where the file should be?

Can anyone help??
MAny Thanks

Allex

Just to clarify... you have only remote access to the machine, and you want to install a new OS while connect to it remotely? You cannot install a new OS on the bare metal while remote-controlling it. You could install it in a VM though. Maybe VirtualBox or vmware?

The answer for your first question is, yes!!
I have a eRIC card installed on the server side which i sprovide by the company (whickh they do not give support)

The file (trixbox-2.2.9.iso) is already there. I can access the server using a remotely ..But again I DON have a clu how to do it.

I am testing the trixbox on VMware on my Pc in here.. If I could run a VMware there I think it wouyld be easier

But what is yours thoughts...?

Well, you simply can't re-install the OS remotely, so I think a VM of some sort if the only real option. That or maybe the people at the hosting company will help you accomplish this, but I cannot speak for them.

I know I can not help regarding the remote installation of Operating System, but just to tell you that you can use remote desktop using humingbird network and to export the output of a screen on your host. If you are only interested to use gui (Graphical User Interface) instead of a linux shell.

Best regards
