Install via FTP/HTTP

Hey! Me again, lol. This time, I need help about installing FC4 over FTP or HTTP. I have a site, but it always says that it can't find the files, then, I check the site directly, and the file exists. So, can u all help me out?

Are you trying to do a network install? Wouldn't it be easier just to download the ISOs (not the SRPM discs, but the normal ones), burn those to CDs, and then just shove those into your computer while booting? That's what I always do...


P.S Please be more specific, because I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to do...."Install over HTTP/FTP" can be interpreted as either "download the ISO via HTTP/FTP", or "do a network installation".
