How to insatll rh7 on old laptop


Hi guys,
I'm :newbie: , can anybody tell me how to install RH on old laptop P120, 32mb 1G and the main thing is NO CD . I got RH7 (cd) but how transfer into my laptop, pls
I used to install debian woody (from floppy) but most of the book I've read rely on RH so command totally differents. so I gave up and try to make easy. Anybody can help or any suggestion to convince me to keep woody.
Thank

well, i realize that you wont be doing anything fancy on this laptop, and it's probably just for academic purposes.
personally, in this case, i wouldn't spend my time trying to get some distro working when there already is one in; unless what you are doing is verrrrry rh-centric. just because the config scripts are placed differently, or the install files go in separate places, doesn't really warrant the shift. i assume you're more interested in "linux", than "redhat"?

p.s: i dont have suggestions on how to get an out-of-support distribution onto the machine.
