I have a web server with a DVD drive, and a server with only a CD ROM drive. How can I install fedora on the server over the network using HTTP? I've searched around but haven't found a method that matches my particular situation. Any ideas?


Thanks.

Do you have SE Linux running in the enforcing mode? If so it makes things a bit harder. You have to remount the DVD with the context=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 option before you can serve it using your WEB browser.

What I did is loop mount the DVD image, and did not bother to burn a DVD. I used /var/www/html/Fedora as my mount point. Then when I was doing the install, I let the installer configure the network, and told it to use http://192.168.1.9/Fedora to install from. You can ether boot from the boot CD for this, or boot from a USB drive. I like using the USB drive because I don't end up with so many CD's for installing old versions. You will have to change 192.168.1.9 to the IP address of your web server.

Sorry for my tardy response, but this did the trick! Thanks for your and everyone else's suggestions.
