Installing linux from network.


Ok guys, here is the deal.
There are couple of computers in my network and only 1 cd-rom.
What I wanna do is, I want to be able to share that cd-rom and install RH 7.1 from that shared cd-rom to the computer which has got no cd-rom.
Can I do that? if so how?
Thank you.

on the installation disk there is a floppy boot disk image for installing over a network, read the readme file there, and it SHOULD be straightforward... fatal last words! it should be in the images directory

ok, I found it, followed the steps and using the dd command I wrote the bootnet.img into the floppy.
While in the boot process it's giving an error saying,
SYSLINUX 1.52 2001-02-07 BOOT FAILED.
What is wrong, any ideas?
Thank you.

well, doubt i'd ever know why that doesn't work. that kind of thing generally makes me give up, esp as there's usually very little evidence to go on... IS there anything else you can say about it? if not, no idea. sorry
