I have a really tough nut to crack here!!

I want to install RH 7.1 from my harddrive. I don't have any other OSes just RedHat 6.2 installed. 2 harddrives and 6.2 on cd-rom.
Are there any way of installing 7.1 from the harddrive without a floppy??

Let me get this clear, do you want to install 7.1 to your hard drive or from a hard drive? Sounds confusing the way you stated your question.

I want to install FROM my harddrive TO my harddrive, without using the floppydisk.

I had hoped that there was an installation method where you could put all 7.1 files in one dir and mount it as a cdrom, and boot from that from Lilo.
There has to be SOME way to install without floppies...
