Re: Installing without a CD drive



Download all the cd isos or better : the dvd iso !
I imagine you have the dvd iso :

installing on another pc :
mount -o loop dvd.iso /tmp/fc5
(you have to create the fc5 directory in tmp)
then run install with "linux askmethod" at the boot , without the quote, and choose ftp or nfs , and enjoy :)
(ftp if you have a ftp server)

installing on the same pc :
put the dvd.iso on a partition you want, and verify the partition : is it hda3 or hdc5 or ...... Then then run install with "linux askmethod" at the boot , without the quote, and choose harddrive
and choose /dev/hdc5 if it is the partition where the iso is
enjoy :)

Could someone list the procedure to do this (I have the iso images on
disc)? It's not in the Installation guide.
