Red Hat Enterprise WS 4 Update 1


Hi,

I have an x86 box with no operating system installed and I need to install Red Hat. Where is a good place to get instructions on how to do that?

1.Go to www.redhat.com
2. Buy Redhat WS --or-- Get free Fedora Core 4(down load the iso's)
3. Burn the ISO to CD's
4. Put CD one in the CD player and the installer will run.

These days, installing linux is a piece of cake. Go tell your colleagues after you've done the install also to use linux.

Join the revolution :-)

If it was that easy, I'd be done by now. The ISO files don't run from the CD's. What's the secret?

You don't put the ISOs onto the CD. The ISO is the CD image, you need to use "burn image" or whatever in your CD burning software to burn the CD.
