Red Hat install over network

I have a good one for all ya.

I have a pc I want to upgrade from Red Hat 7 to 9, but this PC does not have cdrom drive, so I want to do the upgrade via network.

Now I know you guys are thinking, "Why doesnt this dummy go google this? There is plenty of info on how to do that."

Well here is the clincher. This pc has no keyboard, monitor, mouse, and I am not sure about a floppy drive.

How would I do an upgrade, or is it even possible?

sounds like a server to me.

Also, about the install, it would have to be MANUAL. like no simple RH interface on boot from the CD.

With out a keyboard, you will have big problems as the PC probably won't go past the POST screen without one. You will need to get hold of the keyboard and monitor at a minimum before doing anything else.

You will probably want a floppy drive after that. The rest should be straight forward then.

Soory, can't think of any other way around it.
