Re: Installing without a CD drive



If you have an existing installation:

mount iso as loop device
mount -t iso9660 /path/to/iso /tmp/fc5iso -o loop
(you have to mkdir /tmp/fc5iso
cp /tmp/fc5iso/isolinux/vmlinuz
/boot/vmlinuz-fc5install

cp /tmp/fc5iso/isolinux/initrd.img
/boot/initrd-fc5install.img

edit grub.conf
here is an entry I have used, you will need to edit it
to suit:
title fc5 install
        root (hd0,3)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-fc5install ro r
root=LABEL=/mnt/hda4
        initrd /boot/initrd-fc5install .img

boot into fc5 install, use linux askmethod at the
prompt, hard drive installation
