FTP Install of RH9 cant add software?????


So i did an Ftp install of Redhat 9.0 worked no problem..now I want to install the developer tools and samba and its asking me to insert CD1, since I did an FTP Install I dont have any sort of CD that I can insert. Now, isnt there a way to make RedHat look in an FTP for the rpms? (kinda like what SUSE doe). Im stuck here guys, i really dont want to download 2 CDs, but if it's my only choice... Thanx for ur help.

Never installed through ftp but you could always log into red hat network and download directly whatever packages you're looking for.

I guess if there is a direct integrated ftp method you're going to have to download them anyway although I suppose it would be easier if there was an automated way.

I used this page:

http://ftp.uconn.edu/unix/linux/redhat/install-9.0.html

i burned the iso on a cd and worked np

Try installing following the steps under:

Single CD Install Network Install
