Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i am using rhel5 and want to configure the ftp server for installation.
here are my settings:
first of all i have stored my rpms in the following directory.
/var/ftp/pub/Server. then followed the following steps
1- vi /etc/vsftpd/vsfpd.conf
anonymous_enable = YES
chroot_local_user = YES
2- service vsftpd restart
On this machine i am going to install rhel5 via FTP
Following are the steps that i have followed.
1- linux askmethod
2- Installation method = ftp then the following address i have given in client[*] Enable IPv4 support
(*) Manual configuration
3- Manual TCP/IP Configuration
ipv4 address: 192.168.1.5 (client ip) / 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.4 (server ip)
name server: client
4- FTP Setup
FTP site name: 192.168.1.4 (server ip)
Red hat linux server directory: /var/ftp/pub/Server
Now everything goes fine but after the harddisk partioning we get the following error:
Unable to read a package metadata. this may be due to a missing repodata directory. Plz ensure what your install tree has been correctly generated. Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: anaconda_base_200720181624.i386
For this troubleshoot i have checked the directory and everything is fine. all the files are present inside it plus i have also given equal permissions on each file and directory but still this is the error.
plz guide me what to do? or kindly provide me any link or tutorial from which i can get help.
