Install from harddrive?


Is it possible to copy all my CD's over and then make a floppy to boot it up? If so can you tell me how? Thanks for your help (ahead of time)
I'm doing this all from Windows 98 SE
(I'm trying to install Mandrake 9.2)

Please elaborate.
To install from hd, put the *.iso cd image files on the hd, then look on the cd for the image of a bootable floppy that all bootable cds have. Then copy that to a disk with rawrite in Windows.

Yeah. As for what you should do during the installation, this varies from distro to distro, and I suggest you search their site for specific instructions.
