Unhappy Redhat Install Help


So, I downloaded the ISO's for the 2 discs and put them onto cd. But the computer I want to use doesn't support booting to cd, or even cd-rom drives in the bios. How can I install Linux another way without copying the cds to the hard drive. The Linux boot disk also doesn't pick up the cd-rom drive, (but the windows 98 boot disk will)

Thank You
Eckomark

Somewhere on the ftp site are instructions on how to make a boot floppy in DOS by using a utility like 'rawrite'. You will (usually) need to make the boot and modules disks. Download the rawrite utils + documentation, as well as the floppy images that will be placed on the disk.
