Burning Linux to a CD
Posted on 2000-02-21
I have quick question about downloading and install Redhat 6.0 from a CD.
I noticed there were two sets of files to download, the BASE & RPMS files to use while installing from a local Hard Drive and the one large ISO file to burn to a CD. To make a long story short, I downloaded the first option (the BASE & RPMS directories and all the files contained in those directories) and I was able to install RedHat 6.0 from a local hard drive.
However, since I have a small hard drive (560 megs), I started over. I reformatted the drive and burned all of installation files to a CD-Rom. Now when I try to install RedHat 6.0 it hangs right after selecting ‘Local CD-Rom’.
Must I use the ISO file if I want to install from a CD-Rom?
