Install FC5 from HD


Hi, I downloaded the FC5 dvd iso image. I wouldn't burn it on a media, so I tried this:

1. mount in loop option the iso on a directory and copy the files to another directory.
2. I changed the grub file adding the lines:

title Installa FC5
kernel (hd0,9)/fedora/isolinux/vmlinuz noacpi
initrd (hd0,9)/fedora/isolinux/initrd.img

3. Rebooting FC5 installer start, but than asks to me where it can find the cd's image...

Where are this images, what are this images??? I tried /Fedora/base, /images, ecc. but nothing.
Have you ever installed linux in this way??

Many thanks, bye bye.

When installing from the hard drive, it actually is looking for the .iso files. It will automatically mount the isousing loopback. Try pointing it to the directory where your iso is and see if that works. If not, you may need to download the cd iso files.
