Hello friends,
I am not able to install RHEL5 through httpd(apache) server , i checked on the host system , apache server is working fine and i am also able to navigate to my installation dir through browser.

I want to install RHEl5 from guest OS in Vmware:
1.I inserted cd-rom and change bios setting to cd rom
2."linux askmethod" , then select http protocol.
3. but system never retrive files from installtion dir instead retrive from cd rom used for only booting purpose.

Again, SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS.

So, the VM boots from CD-ROM, then you tell it to use HTTP. Is the ISO image loaded on the http server? Can you access it? And again, since you're using RedHat ENTERPRISE, have you checked the RedHat knowledgebase? You have access to it, with your RHEL subscription, where they have complete documentation on how to set this up. Also, have you contacted RedHat support??? Did you try Google?
