Couldn't you just create a GRUB floppy and use grub.conf to transfer boot the CD-ROM?Mark, What you suggest is no longer possible. If you consult the instalation manuals of fc3 and fc4 you'll see it is written there (somewhere). I had the same problem and this is what I did: - downloaded a mini floppy distribuition called tomsrtbt, with all that is needed to format a filesystem and also containing wget - with wget I downloaded the install images (all files in directory isolinux of the first cdrom) - I created a GRUB floppy using gru-install and edited the grub.conf file to point to the install images - then I reboot the pc and grub booted, I choose to boot the install image and then I do a http or nfs install from anothet machine.. that's it. jmf
With something like title BootCD rootnoverify (sda,0) chainloader +1where (sda,0) needs to be changed to whatever the CD is. (I shouldn't make too many suggestions about things like this; only one of my five machines actually still has a floppy....)
