The network install methods are: nfs, ftp, http, nfsiso, httpdisc, and ftpdisc.


- nfs, ftp, and http installs work off of a unified tree (All rpms in a single tree) that is accessible via the given protocol.

- nfsiso works off of an nfs directory containing the isos (and nothing else!). No other network install method can use raw isos.

- ftpdisc and httpdisc work off of a directory containing the split tree (one subdirectory per disc). So you might point the installer at http://myserver/Severn/discs/ where the discs directory contains subdirectories disc1, disc2, and disc3 which themselves contain the contents of the three discs. The idea behind these methods is that you can loopback mount the three isos on your server, make those mountpoint accessible via ftp or http, and run a network install off of that.



thanks


This was so much easier and complete to understand than what I read in
the manual.


i have no luck with my intel etherexpress 100 / e100 driver link is ok but no network-connection no ping, http, nfs, ftp, ... is possible

with the rhl 9 bootdisk.img, drvnet.img no problems


then i have to cdrecording at least cd #1 for a minimal english-installation,
german-mini-inst need 3 packages from cd #2 and no chance to come further without cd #2 :-(




while burning,
it seems that anaconda try his best to find  cd/iso/directory
