RHL 8 FTP installation

that's alright.

u need to use the bootnet.img for the ftp install. it is in the images/ direcotry of the RHL8 CD 1. u can also download it from the ftp site below.

create a boot disk using that image file. use rawrite or dd to make one.

u need to have the ftp source directory with the same structure and contents like from this site:

ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.redh...s/i386/RedHat/

then follow the steps here for the installation proper:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...stall-ftp.html

hth.
