Re: Finally got hold of FC2 now how to install it

What jakub suggests is unfortunately not an option.

Since the server has a 80 GB hard drive and all of it
is currently one partition.

Will either of the following two ideas work:

A. I have my laptop running FC2 and it has the iso's
on it. Can i do some kind of NFS install or network
install from the laptop,

B. I have a USB hard drive with fat 32 parition on it.
Can i put the iso's on it and do something with it,
