Installing from iso images without burning onto CDs...?


Hi All,

I'm using MDK 9.2 on my laptop currently. I downloaded fedora core iso images from their website and wanted to install fedora along with already existing MDK.

I know that the normal way of doing this is to burn the iso images onto a CD and install fedora...

But, is there any way to install fedora by mounting the iso images onto my MDK partitions and then loading anaconda from there to install fedora...

Basically, what i want is to avoid burning CD-Rs to save bucks

Thanks,

Easy way: Use CDRW:s

This is probably possible in the hard way if you allready have some running system and you are not installing over it, but to an other location. (eg. Knoppix should do; but if you don't have knoppix yet, you can as easily burn one FC disk).

That's a link to Red Hat's take on that. If you can't get your head around that one, there are several threads on LQ that discuss the answers as well.

yup seen the page already...

theres this line in the page which asks me to choose to install from the hard disk, but i guess we have to do this in anaconda, but how to load anaconda in the first place?


After placing the required ISO images (the binary Red Hat Linux CD-ROMs) in a directory, choose to install from the hard drive
