Run & use redhat from a cdrom w/no hd?


Hello,

I would like to know if it is possible to run redhat from a cd so I would not need to install it to a hard drive or even have a hard drive. I've herd this would be good for a firewall.

Thanks, Josh

I am not sure if Red Hat would do that, and it would be a huge pain if it did. The good news is that there are some fantastic distros meant to do just this. I wholeheartedly suggest Coyote Linux...It's an awesome and easily config'd firewall distro.
