red hat install over a network

It's been a few months since I last installed Red Hat 9 via my network so I figured I'd go check out there online installation guide to brush up. Well, after reading it several times I'm now more confused than before. =/ I have my boot disk made from the boot image file. I assume it's an nfs install I usd last time but doesn't seam familiar. So as you can tell from reading this I'm a bit lost. I'm using windows networking on two xp machines and the installation files are on the other pc. Could someone point me in the direction to get me going? I'd appreicate it.

You cant use NFS, unless your grabbing the files of another linux machine. From your description, Im guessing your install files are on one of the Winxp machines. In that case, all you have to do is set up either a HTTP or FTP server on that machine thats pointing to the redhat folder. Then either select the FTP or the HTTP option when the boot disks asks you, and enter the IP address of the machine serving the setup files.

Hope that helps
