FTP install

I'm in need of "how-to" install redhat from a ftp server?

I have copied over both CD 1 & 2 to the ftp server and placed them in the pub folder. From my windoze client I can anonymously log into the ftp server and manuevuer around the pub tree and get to CD 1.

From the client I want to do the FTP install I can boot from net disk and when I input the ip address of the ftp server and directory /pub/linux/redhat/ it reports back:

Failed to login to (ip address of the server) and
Unable to connect to ftp server

I have tried selecting and de-selecting anonymous access.
