RH installation

I am trying to install RedHat in my machine from a local dos partition. I made a directory c:\linux and I downloaded the whole directory structure to a local partition from RedHat ftp server into it. I made a bootdisk and started installation. But when I tried to install from the HardDrive the installation process can't find the linux files in the /dev/hda3 location. But the files are visible when I boot from w95. Can you please help me to install it from the HD. I appreciate your cooperation.

You can't install from a fat partition... you can use ext2 (linux native filesystem), iso9660 (cdrom), NFS mounted partition, annonymous ftp site or SMB mounted partition (that's a shared resource of an M$ network running with tcp/ip)

If you have another win* machine, make sure you have tcp/ip installed, copy or move the distribution to it, share it to the lan, and boot from diskette (you'll need both boot and supp images in two diskettes) and install from it...

Good luck

I did ftp installation. I am connected to net with cable modem. But it breaks down some time. Thats why I downloaded all the files from ftp site to my local dos partition. But I cant see them now during installation time. But after installation time when I mounted the drive, I can see all the files. Thanx for the solution anyway.
