Re: Newbie question

I presume you can't boot from CD.  Just mount the first disk using

 mount /dev/cdrom

If running GNOME, it will probably be mounted as
soon as you put it in the drive.  Put a formatted floppy disk in the
floppy drive.  Then

 cd /mnt/cdrom/images

and make a boot disk this way:

 dd if=boot.img of=/dev/fd0

Then reboot, select a "text" install, and later select "upgrade"
rather than install workstation or install server.
