Installing Rocks on a node


I have read the Rocks user guide and do not seem to be able to install it.

I have installed the frontend with no problems, but when trying to install a node I get the following problem.

1. I login with root and run the "insert-ethers" on the frontend node and select "Ethernet Switch". The new node is found with a (*) on the frondend which I believe means that the kickstart files have been sent to the node. The node tell me about the frontend node and then ask me to choose a language and keyboard type.

I do this and then get where to installation method which I select Local CD-ROM. It does seem to care if I use CD or DVD version I get the same error. "The Rocks CD was not found in any of your CD-ROM drives. Please insert the Rocks CD and press enter"

How have try three nodes now , what am I doing wrong? Please help

I have the same problem, but I am running the cluster through a switch. is that a problem if I choose compute node?

Regards Dan,
