I'm trying to install netraider on my running version of Caldera Open Linux 2.3. I down loaded to a floppy using my box and DSL at work and took the thing home and tried to install. All I got was alot of death and destrution. I rtfm and it was pretty clear of how to install from RPM but how do I get the file from the floppy to RPM to install it. I know this is probably laughably basic to ya'll, but I've taken a butt kickin' trying to do it.

You could try to copy the rpm from your floppy to your hard drive first, then run the rpm and install form there. I usually do it that way, gets rid of some confusion sometimes.
