RE: request for clarification: Redhat 7.3, FTP/iso install?



You can't.  You would loop-back mount it on the server before you tried to
do the installation.  An easier supported method is just dropping the ISOs
in a NFS exported directory.  If you do it  this way, the installer knows
how to open the ISOs and do the rest of the installation.

Subject: request for clarification: Redhat 7.3, FTP/iso install?

Hi,

I think I'm tripping on some of the lingo here.  In the FTP section of 
the install manual, it shows a picture of the FTP dialog screen where 
you can enter the name of the server and the directory containing the 
'Redhat files for your architecture'.  Simple 'nuff - been there, 
done that.  

However, it says on the bottom - in a 'Tip', that:
You can also install Red Hat Linux using ISO images without copying 
them into a single tree by loopback mounting them as: 
disc1/,disc2/,disc3

What exactly does that mean?
Can someone clarify this a little?  How do you 'loopback mount' 
something that's across the network, over FTP?
