Smile Installation Fedora 8 over the Network.


Hello all. I am trying to install Fedora 8 to a PC that does not have a DVD Rom drive nor can it boot off a USB flash drive. It does have a floppy drive, CD, and CDRW Burner installed. As well already have XP and SRV 2003, but i have made room for the Linux partition, but anyways. I have the ISO on another PC on the same network. I would like to know if there is something i cant put on the floppy to contact the ISO for installation. I haven't done any over the network installs before. Thank you for your time on this matter.

hello friend,

there is no-way of installing fedora 8 or any linux distribution package over a USB flash drive.but if you have the ISO only there is a way of installing it using Vmware workstation.

thanks

If you can setup a local FTP/HTTP server, then copy the contents of the ISO image(not the ISO file) to the FTP/HTTP root. Use the rescue-cd to boot the machine and point to the FTP/HTTP server you configured. Another option is to use the Hard disk installation --> http://docs.fedoraproject.org/instal...harddrive.html
