Network Install


Network Install

Hi there. I have a server running redhat linux 8.0 on which I have dumped the contents of the install CDsand vsftpd is the FTP server. I want to install this on the client machines on the network. The problem is that none of the clients have floppy drives or CDROM drives, is there any way to do such an install without these drives.

Any help will be useful.

Regards

well not unless they are PXE enabled machiens (or similar) and you'd surely know if they were....

you can easily do a network install by booting a certain boot disk, but there is no way to make it know how to do this without a disk drive...
