RH laptop install help
I am trying to install redhat 7.2 on an ibm thinkpad 570 2644-cdu. Specs: 128 meg ram, 333 mhz PII, 10 gig hard drive. I do not have a cd rom. I have a backpack cd rom but I can not boot off of it. I also have not been able to get linux 5.3 redhat to recognize it. What I did to het 5.3 to work is a hard drive copy of the cd rom from windows. But when I tried that with 7.2 I found that the 7.2 cdrom has transtables embedded. This meant that when the install process was going, it would ask me for the location of the redhat directory. When I typed it in the setup process told me that it could not find the directory table. I would really like to do a net install but my nic is microsoft. (dam' radioshack). If anyone has an idea on how to install 7.2 redhat on a laptop without a cd rom I would be most appreciative.
