Install Debian from images on hard drive?


Is it possible to install Debian from a set of the .iso images stored on a separate hard-drive partition?

I want to store the images on a FAT partition on hda2 and install to LVM on hdb

Is this possible?

Yes it is, but you will need some other os to load the installer.

Check out the docs here:

I was wondering if I could use the network install CD or something like that to point to the CD images on the hard drive like you can with the Fedora Core CD

You can do a network install from almost whatever source, as long as your kernel is installed.
